Purpose and Scope

Code quality and code security aren’t the same, but they’re closely related. And in the current cyber threat environment, developers should care about both

Many developers draw a distinction between code quality and code security. Traditionally, embedded development and QA teams focused on quality, as software defects in embedded devices can cause life-threatening consequences. By contrast, security was most often a concern with web and commercial applications that handle sensitive customer data

Every developer cares about software quality to an extent. Those who can’t write reliable code that consistently produces the intended results will struggle to stay employed. But that doesn’t mean every developer should approach quality in the same way
