As teams and projects grow, code review becomes increasingly important to support the maintainability of complex code bases. But code reviews aren’t as straightforward as they appear because the people involved in them aren’t always predictable.
Nina Zakharenko (Microsoft) dives deep into guidelines for writing consistent code, linting and analysis tools for various languages, and common code review gotchas. You’ll learn about style guides and how they can help make your code more consistent and easier to maintain, as well as what tools are available to help automate the review process. You’ll have better code reviews with your teams at work by giving code reviews with empathy using reviews as tools for sharing knowledge instead of turning the process into a competition. You’ll also discover a better approach to code reviews in open source projects.
