Conquering Uncomfortable Code Reviews

Whether you are doing individual client work or are part of a large team, even the best of us can overlook things, but a mistake that makes it to production means no sleep, unhappy customers, and lost revenue. Peer code reviews minimize this risk and give you confidence in the code you write, allowing you to make big improvements in code quality without bringing your work to a crawl. Learn how to overcome your fears of sharing your code by incorporating peer reviews into your workflow.
