Code reviews as a practice in software development has becoming more and more popular lately, thanks to integration with popular versioning tools. There’s many varieties of code reviews, but common for all is the feedback loop between the submitter of code and the code reviewer.

During my time as a software developer, I’ve experienced great feedback, constructive comments and plain horrible reviews on my code. From these experiences, I’ve compiled a list of do’s and don’ts that I think will make code reviews a more pleasant practice.

Do keep comments short and to the point.
Example: Please use function usefulHelperFunction because it’s been thoroughly tested and should work well for your purpose.
