Join Darth Vader

Darth Vader is a trademark of Disney, not SciTools.

You have mastered your chosen language of code and have successfully written an impressive number of programs. Your skills have not gone unnoticed however; the Empire has taken great interest in your abilities. While you continue the fight against criminally written code, you have failed to sense the darkness growing within.

Your task of maintaining legacy code has begun to weaken your resistance to the dark side. Search your feelings, you know it to be true. The hate is swelling in you now.

No one should have to work with code that lacks all comments and any attempt at formatting. You’ll spend days trying to understand the code and then face weeks refactoring something that should have been scrapped light-years ago.


Fast Legacy Code Comprehension


Poorly documented legacy code leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to spaghetti code.

Anger, fear, Windows 10. The dark side are they. Give in to your legacy code and your journey to the dark side will be complete. Bury your feelings deep down. Struggle with code you must, but aneurysms not make code great. Another way there is.

Visualize your code. Allow static analysis to flow through and parse every line. Rapidly understand each function and comprehend all relationships. Let go of your anger and use the force of visual analysis. Only then can you truly see the program and eliminate the darkness from your software.

You cannot escape your destiny–you must face legacy code again. Visual code analysis is your only hope. Join the resistance today and take control of your code!
