The Code Quality team is in charge of the research process and choosing technologies that will be used for every project.
Choosing the Stack
They have to make sure the right tech stack is selected, a stack that will suit the type of the app being developed. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution and the Code Quality team is the one that has to examine all pertinent factors before reaching the final decision.
Defining the Software Architecture
After completing the research process, they define the software architecture. It is the process of defining a structured solution that meets all requirements and it takes place during the initial phases of the Product Development Lifecycle. It involves a series of decisions that the Code Quality team has to make, keeping in mind that all these decisions have an impact on the quality, performance and the overall success of the application.
The team also proposes new architectural solutions for already existing projects. They review the entire code, identify anything that can be improved and propose actionable solutions.
The review can be done even when the team doesn’t have access to the code. The team analyzes the app performance and the technologies used and proposes the new architecture.
Regular Code Review
When it comes to the code review process, our team performs regular code analysis. Before the QA team tests each new task or feature, a member of the team reviews the code. This is why our every project involves a Code Reviewer who makes sure that only the code of the highest quality is accepted.
In addition to making sure that code review is conducted effectively while distributing the work among the team members, the team is in charge of keeping up to date with the latest technology trends. They have to test them and find out whether they are in line with the established quality or if they are just the latest fad.
By researching and finding the best possible technologies to use, the team introduces and shares insights into implementing the best practices, old or new. Vivify Ideas’ Code Quality team also contributes to the open-source community by creating and submitting various libraries.
