Does this ever happen to you? You finish coding something up and the very second before you become pleased with yourself you suppress that wonderful feeling and wrestle with the fact that coders aren’t exactly impartial when it comes to judging their own code. You realize you have two options. 1, you can accept the fact that a second pair of eyes can’t hurt and you can go around the office in search of that nonbiased someone who is willing to sit down, review your code and provide honest feedback. Or 2, you can say “to heck with it” and just move on to the next thing.
I’ll leave you with this – there is value in every code review. Whether it’s you, or the reviewer, or the project, someone/something is always better off because of a code review. Next time, don’t avoid a code review. And who knows? Maybe you’ll get that chance to be pleased with yourself after all.
