Here on the SubMain blog, I’ve already covered how to use CodeIt.Right to Create C# Coding Standards. Today Visual Basic gets the same treatment. In case you haven’t read the previous post (or any post in this blog at all), I’ll briefly explain what these posts are about.
CodeIt.Right is an automated code review tool. It checks the source code of your application against a set of rules (which can be the standard rules or custom ones), giving you instant feedback on its quality.
Similarly to the previous post, I’ll explain how you can create a Visual Basic coding standard by using CodeIt.Right. If your team doesn’t already know and use coding standards, then that’s a great opportunity for all of you to learn about all of the benefits you’re missing out on. I’ll begin by arguing that you need a coding standard. The SubMain blog has already covered that subject, but I’ll quickly revisit it.
Then I’ll go on to explain the usual problems teams face when trying to implement coding standards and code reviews in a totally manual way.
Lastly, I’ll explain how automation can solve those problems and how can you do so with the help of CodeIt.Right.
