Constant improvements are the hallmark of any great product and this applies to computer code as well. This is exactly why Kodework had a session on code review for the benefit of its team members. The session was conducted by a project manager at Kodework.
Code review, sometimes referred to as peer review is a systematic examination of computer source code. It is intended to find mistakes overlooked in the initial development phase and to improve the overall quality of the software. Reviews are done in various forms such as pair programming, informal walkthroughs and formal inspections. Code reviews matter because they help limit risks, they dramatically improve the quality of the code and they help in familiarising one with the project.
Kodework has daily reviews where team leads have been assigned time slots to reviewing the code of their teammates. Only one member gets reviewed at a time. This helps them to build a good understanding with other team members and learn together, while also improving the overall understanding of the project.
The session was very well received by the attendees.
“Everybody was very inquisitive and interactive. A lot of questions were asked and well answered.”
