|Code review is all about dialogue|
Do it the smart way
Code review is all about dialogue
- Spend no more than 2 hours a day reviewing - that's just enough for your brain.
- Do not be intimidated by senior developers - after all they are all people – if something they wrote in the code is not clear for you - ask them. Remember - code review is all about dialogue.
By reviewing others’ code
- You get a chance to learn from your more experience peers and vice versa.
- Programming skills quickly spread throughout the team.
- Best practices are shared and instilled in your team.
- You can ensure you will spend more time developing than looking at those ugly bugs.
By having your code reviewed by others
- You get help with uncovering your trivial, easy-to-eliminate mistakes.
- You spread your perfect coding skills throughout your team.
- You ensure your perfectly implemented algorithms are not broken by trivial changes.
- You can have productive discussions about the implementation choices made by you that may lead you to even better solutions.
