Launched as a joint venture with support from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Coverity's Scan site began providing static source code analysis to open source developers in March 2006. Over 250 open source projects are now involved with the Scan site, including well known projects such as Samba, Linux, and OpenSSL. In total, the 250 projects represent 50 million lines of code that are analyzed on an ongoing basis to identify potential security and quality defects. To date, more than 8,500 defects have been eliminated by open source developers using information from the Scan site.

We invite you to join David Maxwell, Coverity's open source strategist as well as an open source developer on the NetBSD project as he reviews how the open source projects at the Scan site have leveraged static analysis to improve their code.

Maxwell will also present original analysis based on data collected by the Scan site regarding overall code quality in open source projects, common defect types and many other findings based on the aggregate, daily evaluation of more than 50 million lines of open source code from early 2006 to 2008.

Moderator: David Worthington, Associate Editor, SD Times.
