Landscape on Code Review
The Landscape guys mentioned three things that I’ve missed in Your Code Sucks and I Hate You.
- The important thing about code reviews is that they are a conversation. Emphasise this in your team’s code review culture.
- Don’t speak to the person, speak to the code. “Why does the code do this?” rather than “Why did you do this?”.
- Remember that the person who wrote the patch is an expert in that patch.
