Code reviews help determine the coding standards and let you improve the quality of the application at code level. Any organization that aims to make its code maintainable and easy to scale up or down should conduct code reviews.
Are you satisfied with the coding standards of your APP!
Why Code Reviews?
A code review can reveal issues such as common bugs, thread synchronization, dealing with error conditions, correct accounting for reference-counting and other potential resource leaks, security problems, and ensure that unit tests cover all code paths, error cases, and limit cases.
The Apparent Benefit of Code Reviews includes:
Reduction in Effort
Code review greatly helps reduce the effort of development, sooner the bugs are pointed out lesser it requires effort to fix them
Security code review is a mandatory requirement for some compliance like PCI.
Protect the Company Reputation
Secure code means secure application which will help greatly in company reputation.
Cost Efficient Process
Code reviews reduce the overall cost of the development process by pointing out the bugs at the initial stage.
A comprehensive code reviews process will enhance the quality in ending results of an App/Software.
