Besides the book by Steve McConnell billed above, Code Complete is the general industry term designated in the software development process when the implementation of new features, and the checking in of new code is final. This is not to be mistaken for when a product is "golden". A Code Complete project is only being bug-fixed before its release out into the public.

Code Complete is really the climax of the development cycle. It is the hardest point to get to, and all that is left is the final testing, and release process.
