Performing code reviews

When developing in a team, one of the more widely recommended practices for improving code quality and overall consistency is to conduct code reviews. VS2015 combines with TFS to support the code review process and make it as efficient as possible.

In this recipe, you'll see just how this works.


What are code reviews? By default, it is common to let any developer with access to a source code repository check-in whatever changes they would like, whenever they like. In an effort to improve code quality, a code review can be used where a second developer reviews what has been changed by the first. In this way, the odds of committing broken or poorly thought-out code is minimized, if not eliminated.
