Analyzing Codebases for Fun and Profit

One problem existing for many developers today is ramping up quickly complex and sometimes messy codebases. Analyzing domains is an important skill when we need to solve complex problems, take ownership, contribute to open source, break down monoliths, or even perform code reviews in unknown domains. Using entry-points, breadth-first scanning, and operation tagging related to state or remote communication, you can demystify the domain, see where you need to dive deeper, and uncover what technical debt may exist.
