Code Reviews: 5-6 Classes Rule of Thumb

Tim Shadel recommends when doing code reviews to review no more than 5-6 classes for a one hour review session. I violated that rule of thumb last week, and I can see how it burns you out just reviewing that much code ahead of time. And I have a feeling when we go through the review Monday we’ll run out of time unless we really push it.

At least it will allow us to better evaluate using a tool for the review process. We’re still waiting on the preview release of Crucible, but now that most of our developers have been pushed into Rational Application Developer we are trying out the Jupiter plugin.
