The benefits of an expert review of your application

2020 App Review Code Review development Ruby on Rails

Having just finished three App Reviews of Ruby on Rails apps for clients, I thought I would share the benefits of getting your code reviewed by a developer as part of a standard risk management plan. Reviewing your applications for potential risks carries the same level of importance as assessing for other business risks such as fire, flood and theft. You have likely invested heavily in a custom application, and when it is vitally important to your business operations, it is essential that you identify and are actively mitigating any risks. That way your software investment stays in great shape, bringing in returns for years to come.

We treat every app we review as the most important app we have ever dealt with:

The benefits of code reviews

2020 Code Review Ruby on Rails

At reinteractive, all code changes are reviewed by one or more developers before being released. This is done for every single line of code written. While there is the obvious benefit of having more eyeballs on that piece of code to ensure less bugs slip through the cracks, there are other benefits too!

When you know your teammates will be looking through your code, it helps ensure you are focused on writing clear and concise code. Even if tiny errors in code or patterns slip through the cracks, your teammates can help you catch them before they get deployed and tested, thus helping reduce the number of bugs as well as making sure the code quality remains high. One way you can make it easier for your team to spot edge cases where you have to deviate, is to add comments to highlight why you deviated. It also helps to mention this in the description when making a pull request. That way your teammates don't have to verify if you’ve done the deviation on purpose or if it was a mistake.

Our Code Review Guidelines

2017 Code Review development management operations

Here at reinteractive, we care deeply about the quality of our code. We have many processes in place to ensure that the code we produce for our clients is of the highest quality, one of which is a mandatory code review. Before any feature makes it into staging, it must be reviewed by at least one, and preferably two, other developers.

To quote Wikipedia, a code review is a systematic examination of source code. It is intended to find mistakes overlooked in the initial development phase, improving the overall quality of software.
