November Monthly Meeting

Code Review: Why it mattersTrevor Menagh

Today, so many projects, both open and closed source suffer from lack of quality. Many of us are aware of the importance of testing in our development processes, but code review is something that is often overlooked or misunderstood.

What does it mean to review code? Find bugs? Complain about tabs vs. spaces? Or something more? Code review is about quality, humility and sanity checks, and a good one takes some skill to do right. I will go over some tips I have found useful over the years doing code reviews.

    Excellent talks and fun people. Really great to see Philly come this far with Ruby. Hopefully I can start to be a better part of that in the future!

    First time at Philly.rb, and was impressed by the talks, the audience participation, the group size, and conversations afterwards. Great group.

    It was my first time attending the monthly meetup, and I enjoyed every bit of it (unfortunately I had to leave and didn't attend the after party). The only catch was that though the talks were very informative, I felt like there weren't much for novice Ruby programmers.
