It's undisputed that regular peer reviews are one of the most effective ways to maintain high quality in a code base. Yet, so many development teams choose not to adopt them for their software project.

In the publishing industry, no written word ever sees the light of day before it has gone through an extensive period of critical review. This applies to books, scientific papers and newspaper articles alike. Why not software?

In this session we'll explore the social and practical reasons why code reviews aren't as widely adopted in modern software development shops as they should be. We'll also look at a few concrete tools and techniques that teams can put in place to help them overcome the most common road blocks.

In the end, we'll see how code reviews help peers leverage each other's knowledge and skills to ensure their work is as good as it can possibly be.

Speaker

Enrico Campidoglio (winner of Foo Café Speaker Challenge 2013) is a programmer who combines a strong passion for quality with a mild OCD. He has spent a little over the last decade in the Microsoft and Java camps, striving for simple and expressive code that clearly communicates its intent. He’s also a technical trainer and a speaker, who regularly presents at conferences and user groups about various topics, such as OO design, unit testing and tools.

In his spare time Enrico contributes to AutoFixture, an open source library for .NET that helps alleviate some of the friction experienced when doing Test-driven development by making it easier to generate test data.

Enrico works at tretton37 and can be contacted through his blog or on Twitter @ecampidoglio.
