A SkillsCast for this session is not available.
Code reviews are something that all good engineering teams do, but how well understood is the process and the potential benefits, not just for the resulting code, but for the team itself? In this talk, I’d like to suggest a framework for getting the most out of code reviews, that can address the ‘soft’ skill side of code review just as much as the ‘tech’ aspect
It will, of course, cover the sorts of broad areas a good review should examine, looking at some java-based examples of the sorts of things it should spot.
But I would also like to discuss some other aspects of code review that are often overlooked. For example, a code review can be seen as a valuable piece of peer feedback and can become a great method of knowledge sharing across the team as a whole. Whether you’re an experienced tech lead/team lead, or a junior developer just getting to grips with the process, there are more benefits to be had than just the delivered ticket.
