pp. 625-628
Source code changes can have ripple-effects that result in unchanged source code elements producing different results than they would have produced before the changes. This paper proposes a taxonomy of the types of impacts that can result from source code ...
Comparing the Defect Reduction Benefits of Code Inspection and Test-Driven Development
Found in: IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering
By Jerod W. Wilkerson,Jay F. Nunamaker,Rick Mercer
Issue Date:May 2012
pp. 547-560
This study is a quasi experiment comparing the software defect rates and implementation costs of two methods of software defect reduction: code inspection and test-driven development. We divided participants, consisting of junior and senior computer scienc...
