Outcomes of applying lightweight code review in terms of error detection and perceived value and learning
Abstract: The problems a new start-up company face are numerous. Everything from restricted resources and a very high speed of development, to different backgrounds and levels of expertise and experience of the employees. Procedures have to be set in place in order to give everyone involved the same vision of the product, and to get the development up to speed as fast as possible. This case study implements a light weight code review protocol that is adopted by the programmers of the company, primarily to mitigate the problem of varying expertise. During the course of the study, measurements of errors detected and perceived value and learning were made. Finally, extrapolations of the data was done in order to see what could be generalised from this very specific case study to a broader context.
