Look inside
Deliver code reviews that consistently build up your team and improve your applications.

“Looks Good To Me” offers a unique approach to delivering meaningful code reviews that goes beyond superficial checklists and tense critical conversations. Instead, you’ll learn how to improve both your applications and your team dynamics.

“Looks Good To Me” teaches you how to:

  • Understand a code review's benefits and process
  • Build an objective code review practice
  • Clarify responsibilities: reviewee, reviewer, and team lead/manager
  • Establish manageable guidelines and protocols
  • Automate code quality with linting
  • Compose effective comments
  • Combine reviews with pair programming, mob programming, and developer rotations

This one-of-a-kind guide comes from expert author, instructor, and international speaker Adrienne Braganza, who has spent 10 years pioneering her thoughtful, empathetic approach to code reviews. Inside, you’ll find comprehensive coverage of every part of the code review process, from choosing a system to keeping reviews manageable for everyone involved.

The book’s flexible practices are designed to suit how your team does things. Each chapter offers multiple options and solutions, relatable scenarios, and personal tidbits from Adrienne’s career—plus starter templates that let you apply what you’ve learned straight away.
