Abstract

A code review is basically a technical discussion that should lead to improvements in the code and/or shared knowledge in a team. As with any conversation, it should have substance and form.

What’s involved in a good code review? What kind of problems do we want to spot and address? Trisha Gee talks about things a reviewer may consider when looking at changes: what potential issues to look for, why certain patterns may be harmful, and, of course, what NOT to look at.

But when it comes to commenting on someone’s work, it may be hard to find the right words to convey a useful message without offending the authors. After all, this is something that they worked hard on. Maria Khalusova shares some observations, thoughts and practical tricks on how to give and receive feedback without turning a code review into a battlefield.
