Shara Miller, Web Engineer

This week I am joined with Shara Miller to discuss the merits of a good code review as well as the pitfalls of awful reviews. Coming from a software background, Shara and I talk about our experiences both giving and receiving reviews of our peers code.

Does conducting a public, formal code review shape a good company culture? Will it help the engineer become better at their job, or just better at hiding bad code? How does constructive feedback help a junior engineer learn? What happens when a senior engineer begins to peacock their worth in a review?
