Conducting Humane Code Reviews
Presented by: Adrienne Tacke
Code reviews are a must in a proper development workflow, but what happens when performing or receiving one becomes as fun as getting a root canal? Instead of contributing meaningful suggestions, developers often use these reviews as an opportunity to rehash old arguments or show their "superiority".
This talk will describe the common mistakes developers make while performing a code review, the unwanted side effects they can cause among a team and their codebase, and worthwhile strategies to implement so that these issues are less likely to occur.
By the end of this talk, dev teams should be able to conduct code reviews fairly, catch substantiated mistakes, make productive suggestions, and still like each other afterward!
