Although, I would be happy if more than maybe 10% of all programmers cared about compiler errors and warnings at all. Static code analysis tools are the next step:
1. Make the code compile (what!!!, I'm not allowed to commit uncompilable code to my team mates???).
2. Make the code compile, without warnings (when it does, enable 'treat warnings as errors').
3. Make the code compile, without any analysis warnings.
4. Make all unit tests pass.
5. Make all system tests pass (in the test/staging environment).

Yes, using CI is of course something any developer *always* use year 2014. Even when coding your own 'hello world'. Else your doing it wrong(tm).

I have a theory that it's impossible to prove anything, but I can't prove it.
