Code review is awesome. Do more of it.


Whether you’re collaborating with fellow open source contributors or building systems for your day job, you’ll write better code with other people helping you out. Code review is one of the best and easiest ways to benefit from the experience and smarts of your entire team.

This talk will walk through some ways to help create and nurture a productive code review culture within your team or project, offer tips for how to write good reviews for others, and look at tools (open source, natch!) that make the whole process fast and painless.

Speaking experience

OSBridge 2009+2010; OSCON 2010

This is a new talk, but based on training I've helped provide for multiple teams.
