ByteSized: Code Reviews with GitHub
Show Notes

In this episode of ByteSized we look at code reviews and GitHub. 
Code reviews have a long tradition (see the link to Michael Fagan's paper from 1976 below). 
Modern code management tools like GitHub, GitLab and others provide features to integrate code reviews with your overall development and deployment workflow.

In this episode we look specifically at GitHub and how you can use the mechanism of 'pull requests' to start a conversation and review with your colleagues.

In my conversation with Thibault Lestang from Imperial, we discuss what to look out for when doing a code review with your colleagues. And the fact that reviews are still useful, even if you are not using Github. 


Byte-sized RSE is presented in collaboration with the UNIVERSE-HPC project.
