Code Reviews - Improving Your Review Style
Will Smith
Lead Developer :: Linode

Code review is often the last line of defense between nefarious bugs and the end user, and yet lacks the glory of submitting a PR yourself. Join Will Smith for an opinionated, interactive discussion of conducting proper reviews, including what to look for, how to leave meaningful comments, and how to read a review of your own code, and help shed light on the heroic nature of a good reviewer.

How we built a macOS client for our newest product, threw it away, then built it again

Development Manager :: Wildbit

Learn about our journey, about mistakes that we've made and things that we've learned along the way.
