There are many reasons for doing Code Review. Whether you need to assess the skills of your development team and make sure you get quality code or eliminate bugs in your software, Letzgro offers various solutions to ensure better security and performance of your product.
Finding pitfalls in your software at early stages of the development process can prevent problems in the future and save money. The sooner you find a bug, the cheaper it will cost to fix it. At Letzgro, Code Inspection is a part of team communication, our developers enjoy sharing knowledge with each other working together on a solid and secure code.
Reduce Technical Debt*
With imperfect code architecture, which is often the case, code abstraction can be compromised. As a result developers misunderstand and misinterpret code more often and the potential for bugs rises.
If tech leads and managers aren’t watchful enough, or just forego this principle it can have a disastrous snowball effect on the whole lifespan of the project, with every new feature becoming more and more expensive and time-consuming.

Code Review Methodology
Code review is made independently from the main development process, unless you receive the signals that any coding should be stopped as highly inefficient before the code review is made.
The Code Reviewer needs to have access to the code.
There’s a number of automated code review tools, like Phabricator and Crucible, but humans are still essential to reviewing code, as real people are the ones who make mistakes and there’s no machine that can eliminate all the bugs.
