Number of held Tick-the-Code sessions:
Training session type
Here's an experiment conducted on 78 professional software developers. Before learning Tick-the-Code their ability to find items in source code was measured (in 15 minutes) and then extrapolated (to an hour). Many didn't believe they would have reached the extrapolated number with just more time. Then they were taught how to tick and given an hour to tick the exact same source code. Almost all participants found more than their extrapolated count would have allowed! The average improvement was 5-fold!
Figure 1. shows both the extrapolated Before curve and the measured performance After learning Tick-the-Code. The huge improvement points to great potential in software developers. With the right kind of guidance, they could inspect their code so much better.
