Quality gates are just what they sound like: They ensure the delivery of high-quality software by serving as quality milestones (or “gates”) during various stages of the software development lifecycle (SDLC), preventing bad code from passing through. Here, we explain what are quality gates, how they work, and how to implement them using static analysis. Read along or jump ahead to the section that interests you most: Manage Your ci/cd pipeline with Static Analysis.

Having a dedicated branching strategy is key for teams wanting to speed up their workflows, meet tasks on a deadline, and reduce code errors. But with all the different branching strategies – including release branching, trunk-based branching, feature branching, and more – it can be difficult to determine which one best fits your team’s needs.

Software developers have plenty to keep them awake at night. Their top concern is no longer how to express the latest algorithm in their favorite language (C, C++, Erlang, Java, etc.). Instead, it’s being replaced by artificial intelligence (AI). Here we take a look at the process for AI writing code and answer the question: Will AI replace programmers?

In the age of digital transformation, enterprise continuous testing has become critical for agile and efficient software development. But enterprises often spend too much time managing a multitude of solutions and integrations with zero cohesion between solutions and an inability to gain clear insights. It takes so much time to manage the areas around testing that there is little time for the most important part — the testing itself.

Game development has only grown more complicated as studios adjust to working with increasingly larger projects, globally distributed teams, and limited resources. It’s no surprise that teams are exploring alternative solutions, like cloud game development, to build their next break out game. The appeals of building a game in the cloud include its abilities to minimize developer and artist challenges and optimize your development pipeline.

Perforce's Klocwork static analysis tool can be used as a quality gate in any CI environment. Klocwork acts as a quality gate by analyzing code and preventing the code from moving forward if the quality criteria are not met. In this video, we demonstrate the use of Klocwork in a GitLab environment to illustrate the CI workflow, and how you can use Klocwork to require the pipeline to pass before merging code.

In this video, we show you how to export STIG rule violations to the Klocwork Desktop STIG Viewer, and how to display a complete list of all the vulnerabilities discovered during a static analysis of your code. Klocwork’s coverage for the DISA STIG rules is especially useful for federal accounts that have an obligation to demonstrate NIST RMF compliance for software to be deployed in a federal environment (e.g., the U.S. DoD).

An international animation studio was halfway through producing a high-profile animated series when they needed a game engine migration from Unity to Unreal Engine. The studio turned to ICVR, a vetted digital production studio known for developing cutting-edge tools and pipelines within game engines. ICVR then designed and deployed a real-time and multi-studio pipeline for the teams with Perforce Helix Core as its foundation.

With the ever increasing frequency of cyberattacks, software security is not only essential but necessary. The most effective and efficient practice for safeguarding software is with secure coding standards. When used effectively, these standards prevent, detect, and eliminate errors that could compromise software security. Even though secure coding standards are not overly complex, it can nevertheless be a challenge knowing when and how to use the right standard. For that reason, it is important that you learn about the key secure coding standards and how to comply with them.

The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) requires businesses to protect the personal data they hold for any citizens of Europe. It pertains to those organizations that operate within the EU (European Union), and also those that offer goods and services to individuals in the EU. Proving GDPR compliance is all about documentation. It can be difficult, however, to cover your bases reliably and efficiently. Especially when regulations change.
