Code Review-Review is the Manager's Job

schedule Dec 5th 03:55 - 04:25 PM place Grand Ball Room 1

In a modern development team the code review process is a critical and high value activity - but what is the managers role in it?

In this talk I'll argue that the developers are the players in the game and managers are part coach and part referee. We'll explore how to find the balance between reasonable supervision and micromanagement and what the daily habits you should build as to engage with the process.
