Code Review: How to Make Friends and Influence Developers

I'm a huge fan of peer review, especially with Atlassian's Crucible tool. It can be hard to introduce code review to a group that isn't used to doing it, or has had bad experiences with "hostile" review process in the past. It can be a very effective way to share knowledge and increase quality of a codebase, assuming a few rules are followed.

This is a deck that I like to present to groups that don't have a lot of collective experience with peer review for code. It provides some guidelines that I have harvested from various sources as well as my own experience.

It makes me smile when I see it.

Let's chat about coding, business, learning, and teaching.

I send articles and thoughts occasionally and love to have conversations with folks. Lots of people like them, and I'd love to learn what you think as well. You can always unsubscribe.
