5 tips for great code reviews

In almost every organization, team members collaborate to get work done. Software teams typically transition issues between people for different functions like code development, code review, and testing (even if they are all on the same team). When transitioning an issue from one team member to another it’s important to minimize the amount of ramp up required for the receiver to fully understand the issue. Transferring issues can be extremely expensive as it requires time from not only one,

If you've ever sat down with a more experienced developer for a pair programming session, you'd probably agree that it's one of the most effective ways to learn, and absorb new skills, tools, and tricks. So I am very happy to present you with a new webinar that will reproduce the same feel of a live training session. This is your chance to sit beside me as I work through a typical bug-fix lifecycle from branch creation, through code review, to the final merge, using the powerful toolset that Git brings

Many teams have already migrated to git and many more are transitioning to it now. Apart from training single developers and appointing Champions to help with the adoption it is imperative to pick a nice and simple code collaboration practice that does not complicate things too much. With git one can definitely conjure very complicated workflows, I've seen them first hand. A manual on workflows does not come pre-installed with git, but maybe it should seeing how many people have questions on
