"There are many benefits of code review---lower development costs, increased code quality, quick up-skilling and on-boarding of team members. Despite these benefits many teams don’t have code review as part of their process at all, while others don’t get the gains they should.

This talk outlines the business case for code review and explores how to make code review effective, specifically looking at:

* Expectations of what can be achieved with code review.
* What should be covered by code review (including example code).
* What should not be covered by code review.
* How to write code that makes code review easy.
* What makes good code review comments.
* What makes good responses to code review comments.

Finally, to wrap up, you'll be shown how to enable a code review with GitHub. Spoiler alert---it can be done it under five minutes!

So if you are on a team that isn’t using code review, or isn’t using it effectively, then you should be at this talk. "

This was definitely the best talk I've attended so far this year. Very informative, lots of useful details mixed in with sufficiently high-level insights to be able to apply the lessons to my own work.
