We all make mistakes, as much as we try to write flawless code, every now and then an error slips through. In order to reduce this number we do code reviews to ensure the code meets certain standards and to see if the feature was properly implemented. But how do you do a good code review? How do you handle technical discussions? How do you keep your reviews focused and your discussions relevant? In this talk I would like to show you how you can do proper code reviews, what to look out for when doing them, how to give feedback to the developer and a bunch of other tips to improve this process.

I certainly learned a lot with this talk, with good examples and proper data the speaker is able to convince you and your company to do and adopt code reviews!

Good talk, on an important subject. The speaker has a great style.

It is unusual to see survey results in PHP talks, they were very interesting and made a good basis for the rest of the talk.

On the negative side, the recommendations were rather brief, I would have liked more detail there.

Engaging speaker and some good content, especially as he offered to step in last minute.

Form the early description I could have done with less 'persuading people to have code reviews' and more focus on specific good practices - what was there was great.

Rick did great to step in last minute and cover a topic I was most interested in. Delivery was good and insightful. Sadly missed the questions as I had to step out.
