Engineering managers on the iManage Collaboration Project Team were seeking options for improving code quality and team productivity. One idea was to find a way to review code and provide feedback earlier in the development process, so they could find and fix small issues before they grow into larger problems. Traditional code review based on PR comments is cumbersome and not well suited for this lightweight approach.
“We were looking for a simple and intuitive way to supplement our code review process with earlier feedback for our developers. CodeStream makes it easy to identify problems and leave clear suggestions and instructions alongside the code in the IDE. CodeStream doesn’t replace your formal code review process, but it does make it faster and easier. Our code quality has definitely benefited from using CodeStream in our workflow.”
- Arvind Agarwal, Head of Engineering, iManage Collaboration Project Team
Please share your thoughts and feedback @teamcodestream.
CodeStream helps development teams discuss, review and understand code. CodeStream links comments and issues directly to the code blocks they refer to, making them instantly available to everyone on the team.
Discussing code can be difficult which is why it doesn't happen often enough.
Schedule a personal demo with our product team and see how facilitating code discussion can streamline your team's code reviews and improve the quality of your code base.
