This chapter gave an overview of the Sonar platform, its history, and its features. We further explored the concept of quality in software products and how it is measured.
We analyzed the methodology of covering quality on seven axes and detailed the Sonar architecture along with the code analyzers it provides. Finally, we took a closer look around the Sonar community and its ecosystem.
In the next chapter, we will focus on setting up the environment and installing Sonar along with plugins.
