Code reviews consist of the following four steps:

  1. Initialization
  2. Preparation
  3. Meeting
  4. Corrections


Code reviews are carried out by personnel in four roles: author, moderator, reader, and recorder. Depending on the size of your inspection team and the formality of your inspection process, some people may serve in multiple roles at the same time. However, if you have a large enough team, it is useful to assign each role to a different person so each person can focus on their duties.

  1. Moderator
  2. Author
  3. Reader
  4. Recorder
