Do you have students pushing back on quality when your TA’s perform GitHub Audits? Generally students and developers alike think that paying attention to Code Quality hinders them. While writing maintainable and thus future-proof code is of paramount importance to society (ref Marc Andreessen).
The Better Code Hub (BCH) is an free add-on to GitHub that your TAs will love. BCH gives a Definition of Done for code quality because it will not flood you with countless violations, but instead takes a benchmarked and holistic approach to assess the quality of the code base. In this medium post we argue that Higher Grades for Better Code.
We offer free access to private repo’s with Better Code Hub for teachers and their students in the non-commercial Education domain. Contact me if you want to know more about the BCH Educational Program. I can share experiences of teachers around the world using this tool to explain the concept of maintainable code to students.
