Code Reviews Are A Luxury, So Cherish Them

Learn more about how DevOps teams must adopt a more agile development process, working in parallel instead of waiting on other teams to finish their components or for resources to become available, brought to you in partnership with CA Technologies.

Software developers, in my experience, tend to be of a certain type. Often a bit pedantic and with a tendency to stick with doing a task the same way. It’s a hazard of the job. When every detail, even the smallest semi-colon (and in some languages whitespace) can make a big difference.

For a SOHO Developer these characteristics bring their own challenges. It can be all too easy to get stuck in your own vision of how a plugin or template should work.

When working as an in-house developer you will have colleagues to bounce ideas off. If you have an idea, talking it over with someone can enhance it, or stop you making a less than optimal design decision.

A SOHO Developer does not have this option.

So the next time you have someone review your plugin or a template, see it as a positive result. Because it could just make you think in another direction and make your product better for it.

Do you do code reviews? Are you a SOHO developer? If so, who with or how do you bounce ideas around? I would love to have your feedback so why not leave me a comment.
