DevDays Austin: Jason Cohen on Why Code Review Doesn't Have to Suck

This is content taken from the 2009 StackOverflow DevDays conference in Austin, Tx.

Jason Cohen of Smart Bear Software literally wrote the book on giving modern code reviews. He provides great insight into the current state of code reviews and how to do them better.

Personally, I think the most valuable part of this presentation deals with how to not waste time when doing code reviews. Code reviews can be super costly if you aren't careful and Jason outlines some great ways to avoid being wasteful with the time and effort of your team.

Jason provides practical insight that can be applied to your software group no matter what the state of your code review process is. Think you don't have the time, budget, or backing to perform awesome code reviews? Think again.

Enjoy!
