Software development outsourcing: how to conduct code review

Challenges of code review in software development outsourcing

Code reviewing techniques: meetings vs. automation tools

  1. Instant, when the reviewer sits next to the programmer and corrects the code instantly.
  2. Ad hoc or synchronous, when the reviewer corrects the code shortly after it has been written and discusses their corrections with the coder.
  3. Meetings, when a group of experts corrects the code with or without the coder’s participation.
