Effective development is all about communication - with other developers, with users, with managers(!). While this has always been true, the gap between the Scala true believers and the rest-of-the-world can sometimes feel cavernous.
During this talk, you will explore the use of code reviews (specifically Reviewing for Intent) in establishing a common culture and set of values which can adapt with changing conditions (and contrast against fixed standards in a language of constant change and variable idioms), contrast whether you should use experts or novices in reviews (and the extra challenges from functional programming!).
You will also discover the challenges in inheriting (and bequeathing) a Scala project between teams and attack the tricky issue of over engineering with a simple metrics based approach.
The Call for Papers is now open for Scala eXchange 2017! Submit your talk for the chance to join a stellar line-up of experts on stage. Find out more.
