3 Ways Code Review Makes Your Dev Team Better

These three benefits of establishing a healthy code review process can help development teams write better code and do it more efficiently:

Improve readability and maintainability

With the exception of solo engineers working on their own projects, most software is a collaboration built by teams of people working together. As development teams grow, oftentimes the developer now assigned to maintaining a feature isn’t the same person who originally wrote it.

Code review is the best opportunity to get feedback on the readability of your code from another engineer. In addition to checking for quality and performant code, a good review process encourages teams to optimize code for readability.

Code Review as a Service on GitHub

Software development teams are now using PullRequest’s code review as a service inside of GitHub. The new GitHub app from PullRequest allows developers to receive feedback from professional code reviewers as a part of their GitHub workflow. These software teams are using the paid code review to supplement, or in some cases, replace their peer code review process. This feedback helps them write cleaner code with fewer bugs.
