Make Code Reviews Your Superpower.

Introduction to Code Review Workshops

Code Reviews are either a team’s superpower or an expensive bottleneck.

As a developer that practices code reviews, you are well aware of all the benefits of this engineering practice. Not only do code reviews increase the quality, readability, and maintainability of your codebase, but also foster collaboration of team members, increase knowledge sharing, mentoring and learning.

Still, code reviews also have their expensive drawbacks. In the worst case, code reviews drastically reduce the productivity of an engineering team while yielding to questionable or mediocre code improvements at best. I've seen too many companies suffer from the costly drawbacks of code reviews. Engineers spend a significant amount of time doing code reviews while experiencing pitfalls such as large reviews, long review times, insecurities on review approaches, and varying quality of code review feedback.

In a code review workshop you learn how to implement a high-impact code review practice.

By understanding and measuring your code review pain points, and learning proven code review best practices, you learn how to transform your code reviews from nightmare to a valuable superpower.

After the workshop, it will be crystal clear to you and your team how to effectively increase turnaround times while also ensuring high-quality review feedback. Learn from extensive code review research done by companies like Microsoft, Google, and Facebook. Get a rock-solid foundation on how to implement code reviews to ensure high productivity and high agility for your company.

Gets to fast and effective code reviews, and improve collaboration and communication, by booking a code review workshop.

What you can expect from the workshop

Hi, I'm Dr. Michaela Greiler.

Over the last 10 years, I extensively researched and developed test, build, and code review techniques and tools that boost the effectiveness and efficiency of engineering teams. I worked with all major product teams at Microsoft, such as Office, Windows, and Visual Studio to overcome pitfalls during code reviews.

Since 2018, I also help companies outside of Microsoft boost their code review practices.

I have a Ph.D. from Delft University of Technology in Software Engineering and received the Google Techmaker Award. I also run the Software Engineering Unlocked podcast. My research is published in several high-ranked scientific journals.

What to Expect?

Through my code review workshops, your team gets to fast and effective code reviews, and improves their collaboration and communication. All workshops happen in small groups, are very interactive and filled with hands-on exercise.


Interactive and Hands-on

The code review workshops are packed with hands-on exercises, interactive discussions, little games, and equip the participants with actionable know-how.


Play and Impactful

The code review trainings are playful, yet lead to tangible outcomes. Depending on the workshop, participants will be able to increase code review tum-around times, feedback quality, or collaboration.


Fully Remote

The code review workshops are held in a fully remote set-up via video conference tools such as Zoom. Participants need access to their own codebase and their code reviews.


Research and Best Practices

The code review training is led by the leading code review expert, Dr. Michaela Greiler. Participants learn practices from industry leaders such as Microsoft, Google, Facebook and all advice is based on the latest research findings.

What Others Say

Thank you for leading the code review workshop earlier in the week. I found it to be informative and engaging. It encouraged discussion in a relaxed environment, which was valuable to me since a lot of the colleagues attending were in orgs that have different practices.

Ciro NishiguchiChief Engineer at National Instruments

Thanks a lot for the very interesting code review workshop! I feel that it emphasized many important points, of which I wasn't fully aware. The workshop was interactive and the studies you shared were interesting and inspiring.

Tal DavidSoftware Developer at Wix.com

Code-reviews and their expected results are very subjective. Putting them into a valuable and dignified context for all participants can be difficult. This workshop offers actionable ideas and principles that can help improve them for your team and yourself.

Jakob OberhummerCofounder at Etonomy

Michaela is a great communicator and expert on the topic! I enjoyed the code review training in general, especially provided examples of good and poor code review feedback. If you are interested or want to know more about code reviews best practices I’d definitely recommend her!
