Code Reviews for Developers training course (code: CodeRev)

TRAINING COURSE OVERVIEW

Our Code Reviews training course responds to client feedback which shows that delegates best engage when they can relate course topics to their own day-to-day practices and requirements. We therefore run this course as a consultative, workshop-style event, in which discussion of topics such as what are Code Reviews, what are their benefits to your company and how can you adopt and apply them takes place in relation to the delegates' own applications and scenarios.

AUDIENCE

Anyone involved in the Software Development process and especially Developers
