Advantages of code reviews

This is an interesting short podcast on code reviews.

It highlights the advantages of code reviews: how reviews increase collaboration and sharing knowledge when used correctly. It has a small technical part about GitHub but it is more generic than just GitHub. It has some good advice for reviewers and reviewees about how to approach code reviews.

And the last piece of advice is very good: a research group would gain a lot by introducing code reviews on all software produced. That is, reviewing codes written by individuals for their own research and not just software produced by a team.
