Fast Code Reviews: 8 December 23

Code reviews bring many benefits, such as increased collaboration and knowledge sharing, a better and more maintainable codebase, and a decrease in defects.

Yet, most developers experience several drawbacks when practicing code reviews:

  • a decrease in productivity
  • long waiting times
  • interruptions
  • low-quality feedback
  • interpersonal conflicts
  • harsh or toxic comments, etc.

In this interactive and hands-on workshop, you learn how to overcome those pain points and get to fast yet effective code reviews.

The workshop shows you the best practices and latest research that helps speed up code review turnaround times while keeping a high quality of feedback.

What participants say about the workshop

"Perfect mix of theory, background, and practical. This is hard to get right!" (Dave Cottlehuber, Software architect at SkunkWerks)

"Thank you for leading the workshop earlier in the week. I found it to be informative and engaging. It encouraged discussion in a relaxed environment, which was valuable to me since a lot of the colleagues attending were in orgs that have different practices." (Ciro Nishiguchi, Chief Engineer at National Instruments) "I really recommend this code review workshop. It expanded my understanding of the code review process. Specifically, I understood much better the difference in perspectives between coder and reviewer." (Stas Wishnevetsky, Backend Team Lead

"Michaela is a great communicator and expert on the topic! I enjoyed the workshop in general, especially provided examples of good and poor code review feedback. If you are interested or want to know more about code reviews best practices I’d definitely recommend her!" (Vasily Belolapotkov, Full-stack developer at Automattic)

"Code-reviews and their expected results are very subjective. Putting them into a valuable and dignified context for all participants can be difficult. This workshop offers actionable ideas and principles that can help improve them for your team and yourself." (Jakob Oberhummer, Co-Founder at Etonomy)
