Presentation: "Creating a Culture of Code Review"

Time: Friday 15:35 - 16:35

Location: Concordia Room

Abstract: Done right, peer code review can dramatically improve the quality of your software. Done wrong, it can waste time and engender resentment and distrust amongst team members. In this talk, I'll describe how my team at Atlassian successfully adopted a policy of peer reviewing every commit to our codebase. I'll outline changes-- both cultural and procedural-- that helped make this policy successful. Finally, I'll try to quantify the cost of adopting such a policy, using data gathered from our code review tool, Crucible.
