Robust DevOps plays a huge role in the health and sanity of software. The metadata generated during DevOps need to be harnessed for deriving useful insights on the health of the software. This area of work can be classified as code analytics and comprises of the following (but not limited to): 1. commit history from the source code management system (SCM); 2. the engineers that worked on the commit; 3. the reviewers on the commit; 4. the extent of build (if applicable) and test validation prior to the commit, the types of failures found in iterative processes, and the fixes done; 5. test extent of test coverage on the commit; 6. any static profiling on the code in the commit; 7. the size and complexity of the commit; 8. many more. This chapter articulates many ways the above information can be used for effective software development.
