  1. @DerekB_WI Knowledge Sharing This is probably one of the most

    valuable reasons to do code review.” – Trisha Gee of JetBrains
  2. @DerekB_WI Excellent Coaching Opportunity Insightful feedback accelerates learning and growth.

    Quality code strengthens readability and system understanding. This is a force multiplier for the team’s long term feature velocity. Curtis Einsmann – AWS Engineer
  3. @DerekB_WI I comment with kindness I comment on the code,

    not the person. I avoid using “you” or “your.” I prefix nitpicks with ”nit.” I phrase most comments as questions or suggestions. I leave at least one positive comment. Curtis Einsmann – AWS Engineer
  4. @DerekB_WI learning from others. Remember that code reviews are not

    just for looking at what’s wrong, but for Camila Lenis – Truora, Inc.
