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.

"The practical session to end the course was fantastic and the 12 point code review summary will be taken back to my team and used on a daily basis. The trainer was excellent, informing us in more ways than we had requested, whilst tailoring the course to our needs. It was the best value course I've ever been on."
