The reviewer checklist - or better said how to be a better code reviewer with a methodical approach. In this talk we explore what a code reviewer should flag out and what should not, from finding bad code smell, design problem to spot performance or security issue and poor test coverage. The talks includes snippets of code to demonstrate solutions, challenges I’ve encountered while reviewing code in several big projects and, of course, what has become my checklist.

Useful talk. Centred more on CI review tools more than I expected but still really useful.

Really good talk. Helped to get my head around the importance of code review. Provided some good tips as well.

Very good talk, gave my colleagues some great ideas to take back to the workplace and try to implement and make the process nicer to work with.
