Code Review Guide

A couple of days ago we watched the talk “Implementing a Strong Code-Review Culture” at work.

The talk made me realize there were a lot of things I could improve in regards to code review. Therefore, I set out to research more about the topic and write a sort of guide that would be useful to anybody wishing to improve his code review skills.

I compiled most of those findings in this gist. I took a lot of ideas from thoughtbot’s guide but I added some links and information that help provide more context to the guide’s content. Additionally, I wanted to have some information on what to look for during a review.

The gist also has the pull request template I am using to help make code review easier.

P.S. Thanks to Bruno for recommending the talk and reviewing the gist!
