Code reviews are something I really value high. In my opinion, every software development team should do code reviews. In brief, the reason is learning and sharing knowledge and code quality. In this blog post, I will explain why.
I wrote a book review of The Clean Coder by Robert C. Martin ("Uncle Bob"). It tells what makes programmer a professional programmer and gives practical advice. Professional programmer takes responsibility for his/her work and improves himself/herself constantly. Someone who cares about his/her career as a programmer. The book is relatively short (210 pages) and easy to read. I recommend it to all software developers. My rating: 4/5.
The most important thing for a software developer is his knowledge. Unfortunately it will expire sooner or later if we don't maintain and improve it. But problem is that we are often too busy to improve. Working on the important and non-urgent is one solution to improve even if you are busy.
