Preparing Code for Review
Preparation sets your reviewers up for success.
Commit Messages
Make sure your commit messages are descriptive.
Github PR Descriptions
Your PR descriptions should be an extension of your commit messages. Write about both what the commit changes, and how you implemented the change.
Performing Code Reviews
How to Review
Make two passes over the PR if it's substantial.
On the first pass, come to an understanding of the code change at a high level.
On the second pass, pay more attention to semantic details.
Examples
var commentCount = 0;
You might suggest that this be a let instead of var.

Want to print your doc?
This is not the way.
Try clicking the ⋯ next to your doc name or using a keyboard shortcut (
CtrlP
) instead.
