Why code reviews?

Software engineers engage in code reviews daily. Think about how much time you spend performing code reviews, writing code that'll be reviewed, or addressing code review feedback. There's no denying it:

If you master code reviews, you'll level up fast. 📈

A few aspects of code reviews are objective — finding flaws and defects. But most aspects are subjective — opinion based discussions around software quality and readability.

Succeeding in code reviews takes specific soft skills, social skills and technical skills.Yet nobody's talking about them. And that's why I built this. 💥

Who's the instructor?

👋 I'm Curtis. 6 years ago, I could barely ship code at Amazon Web Services. My Pull Requests got 50+ comments, and took 7+ reviews. I went on to ship 550 PRs to production. In my last year at AWS, I shipped 90% of them in the first review. I've reviewed over 850 PRs. My code review feedback has helped my peers level up and earn promotions.

Through my writing, I've helped hundreds of developers around the globe Master the Code Review. I'll teach you to do the same.

This is an opinionated course by yours truly. I have first-hand experience on the topics I cover. You won’t find this information in code review documentation or guidelines you’ve seen anywhere else. 🔷
