Tools are essential for software development—and they have to be customizable. To learn how to judge analysis tools, we take a closer look at what such tools are made of. We pay detailed attention to visualization techniques and tools, and we show how they can make a difference when thinking about agile architecture.
In these segments, we take a look at the inner workings of analysis tools, and we pay specific attention to software visualization.
