Software Engineering at Google Chapter #17 - Code Search (1 of 3)

  • Notes on this chapter are minimal because most of this only applies to Google and codebases of their scale
  • Google uses a custom in-house code search tool
  • Code search helps answer questions in only one or two clicks...
    • Where is a symbol defined?
    • What code uses that symbol?
    • How do i use the symbol? (documentation)
    • When was the symbol added to the code base?
