In 1976 Thomas J. McCabe, Sr. developed metrics to determine the complexity of the code we write. One year later Maurice Howard Halstead formulated the so called Halstead metric to achieve something similar. 30 years later, you still rely on those abstract numbers that describe the complexity of our code, but do these naked numbers really tell you the truth about our code? Do they really give you the best advice on how to manage your code over its lifetime?

Sebastian doesn't believe so. Thanks to your modern, sophisticated toolchain you have many metrics at hand that Mr. McCabe & Mr. Halstead could only dream of. In this talk, Sebastian will share with you how the combination can give you much better & "more human" advice about the flaws of your codebase - not as abstract numbers, but as concrete pointers to the parts of your code that really need your love & attention.
