Preface

Code reviews vary widely in their level of formality. Reviews can be as informal as inviting a friend to help look for a hard to find bug, and they can be as formal as a software inspection process with trained teams, assigned roles and responsibilities, and a formal metric and quality tracking program.

In Peer Reviews in Software, Karl Wiegers lists seven review processes from least to most formal:

  1. Ad hoc review
  2. Passaround
  3. Pair programming
  4. Walkthrough
  5. Team review
  6. Inspection
