Peer reviews

Posted by kevinup on February 26, 2009

I’ve always been a big fan of peer reviews. I enjoy both giving them and receiving them. However, I find there is generally a developer resistance to them. Which is unfortunate. I hate reposting what someone else has already written, but I think Jeff Atwood really hit this right on the nose: Who’s Your Coding Buddy?. I think with a decent unit testing framework combined with code reviews, it should be possible to deliver software virtually defect free.
