I love to get better as a developer and when I get rewarded for that even better! In this session we'll have a look at ten tools that make our lives as developers easier and along the way allow us to become better as a developer. Services like Github or Bitbucket allow us to communicate with one another about code while Scrutinizer, Code-Climate or Insight can give us valuable informations on how to improve our coding skills and easily bring our code to a better level. Suddenly tedious tasks like writing unittests, reducing cyclomatic complexity and adding documentation can become entertaining and rewarding. All this because we all strive to get high marks, 100% or a green button. So let's see what the benefits of the different tools are and how we can integrate them into our build-chain.

Nice, accessible, and humorous talk, with an especially useful overview of static analysis, CI- and code coverage related tooling. You did seem a bit lost in the section about Humbug though, so it might be good to tweak that a bit. I also recalled you mentioning that Humbug mutates tests; if I understand correctly it should actually mutate the system-under-test. Overall, I think this talk was a good way to promote the usage of CI and static analysis, and I'm pretty sure that everyone in the audience will have learned something new from it.
