“Unfortunately, embedded software developers are not regularly doing code review,” said Justin Collier, Product Owner, Collaborator at SmartBear. “In the embedded software space, it is extremely difficult or near impossible to provide an update if a defect is found after a release. Therefore, it’s very important to get it right the first time. Implementing peer code review helps catch bugs earlier and more often, before it gets to the QA team, cutting the cost in half of what it would be to fix the bugs beyond QA.”
Just announced, Collaborator also has a new JIRA plugin that allows Collaborator reviews to be created by clicking a button in the JIRA Issue, automatically attaching SVN/Git commits to a review. Additionally, an IntelliJ plugin allows users to easily create reviews from within the IntelliJ interface for SVN/Git.
