best practices

Our engineering workflow revolves around our code review process, increasingly so in today’s remote and hybrid teams. Code reviews are more than just a way to ensure we don’t introduce new bugs into the codebase. They have become pillars of our team’s engineering culture—ensuring code quality, encouraging collaboration, and providing valuable teaching and learning opportunities. We’ll look at the ways our code review process can define, reflect, and reinforce our teams' culture. These methods can be useful whether we're building and managing engineering teams at startups, large companies or open source communities--co-located or across the globe. We’ll walk through the process with actual pull requests and identify best practices for more productive code reviews.

Take Aways

  • Understand how your team or open source community culture is exposed in code reviews
  • Understand what components makes up team culture
  • Understand how code review best practices can help define and reinforce the culture you want
