Static code analysis is the automated inspection of whole-program source code without executing that program. Over time, a number of interpretations and even misconceptions about this technology and how it impacts software developers have emerged, including:

  • Static analysis is for junior developers
  • Static analysis is noisy and generates too many false positives
