Bugs – the bane of a software developer’s existence.
When not found and fixed quickly, even the most minor bugs can escalate to cause severe functionality issues for all kinds of software, not to mention causing hours of software team frustration spent locating and making fixes. Fortunately, as the below infographic illustrates from Collaborator, today’s code review methods can crack down on buggy code and save companies thousands of dollars and developers man-hours over time. The key is to start the review process during the development process. And while many software operations can be performed by machine, code review still requires the human touch. Don’t code without code review – implement these tactics in your organization and help fight bad code today!
