Review by peers, colleagues, experts and stakeholders is perhaps the most effective tool we have for improving the quality of software. But if review is so wonderful, why is it used so infrequently?
In this workshop, Robert will show you how to conduct effective code, design and requirements reviews using a variety of techniques from the relatively informal sort of reviews you’re perhaps doing already, through to the most formal inspections. We’ll work together to understand what makes a good review, and to help you identify behaviours that lead to poor outcomes, in the form of either defective software or unhappy colleagues.
Throughout this workshop, you’ll get plenty of advice on how to introduce effective technical reviews into your engineering culture.
