Discussion on: Estimating quality of a codebase

I first look at the code style

  1. is it consistent
  2. how big are the units (i.e. type/methods/files/..)
    • are they small

Then I look at the pre-commit phase of the project

  1. is there a simple and quick build/verify process
  2. is there basic static analysis
  3. how many unit tests are there

A 'no' to any of these is a red flag.
