Runtime Analysis With Brian Kelly

Posted on Thursday, Nov 23, 2023
Most developers are familiar with two sources of data about their applications: 1) static code analysis, and 2) observability tools monitoring their system in production. However, a new data source is gaining popularity: Runtime analysis. Runtime analysis is a technique where an application’s dynamic behavior is recorded and analyzed during development time, allowing flaws and other insights to be revealed before that code is deployed to production.
