Just shy of 70% also say that code review is an opportunity to mentor less-experienced developers.
4 in 5 software professionals say they often learn from others in code reviews. 3 in 5 development teams use code review to onboard new members. Performing code review is important. Performing it well is priceless. Here are a few dos and don’ts on establishing healthy code review culture.
