I've recently finished my first year as a technical team lead, my first role mentoring and supporting a technical team rather than being fully involved designing and coding on projects. This is some of the stuff I wish I had learnt faster.
This is my list of things to consider when thinking about training for a technical team, produced while discussing how we could introduce such a radical idea.
Over the past 6 months or so, I've spent a lot of time in code reviews and discussions with various teams writing "enterprise" code (i.e. the boring plumbing stuff).
So here is my attempt to record the stuff I find myself repeating in these discussions, along with some notes to explain myself.
Code reviews are a good idea for many reasons. They encourage people to share their opinions on how code should look at its prettiest and also what they like to see when they're called in to look at the ashes of a dead production app.
These are my opinions on reviewing code with a view to swearing as little as possible if I have to see it again when stressed.
