    Assessing Code Quality with Sonar
    By Mike McGarr, 1 May 2012

Soon after joining the team, I noticed numerous code quality issues that needed to be addressed. In order to justify the effort to improve code quality to non-technical decision makers, I needed a quantitative method for measuring the quality of the source code and possibly the technical debt.
