The 10 Commandments of Navigating Code Reviews

The 10 Commandments of Navigating Code Reviews

Receiving feedback on your work, especially from various sources with different personalities, can be difficult to consume. In this article, I provide ten guidelines that I personally follow to ensure smooth, drama-free code reviews. These guidelines are useful for developers, automation engineers, or anyone else who needs to navigate the code review process.

Here are the 10 commandments at a high level

I. Thou Shalt Not Take It Personally

II. Thou Shalt Not Marry the Code

III. Thou Shalt Consider All Feedback

IV. Thou Shalt Articulate Your Rationale

V. Thou Shalt Be Willing to Compromise

VI. Thou Shalt Contribute to Others’ Code Reviews

VII. Thou Shalt Treat Submitters How Thou Wants to Be Treated

VIII. Thou Shalt Not Be Intimidated by the Number of Comments

IX. Thou Shalt Not Repeat the Same Mistakes

X. Thou Shalt Embrace the Nits


The details on each of these are published on Techbeacon.
