Discussion on: Mistakes I made in code reviews and what I do now

What matters most (to me):
Code reviews need to be about support.
If there's a large PR, written by the most awesome, experienced 10x developer there's still a good chance even the intern, that is just starting out will be able to spot something.

It's sometimes hard if people point out a lot of things, it's easy to become defensive, maybe those people are actually less experienced or capable or couldn't write that code themself.

To me, that's the power of code reviews. Even some intern just starting to code has a good chance to improve the code written by the most experienced developer.

That's why code reviews are awesome and why they are so important.
