Discussion on: What is your team code review process?

Pretty much. I have seen the following three approaches (and also a "screw code review" one), all of them can work if the team is committed and knows the drawbacks.

  • Internal knowledge. I have refactored the environmental variables...who's the "guru" or the accountable person here? I will give it to them.
  • Team meeting. The dev presents their work to the team or a subset of the team. An approval or decline, should happen asap, ideally at the meeting's end.
  • Leave it hanging. Let the team know there is a pending review. Anyone can pick it up, sometimes someone not senior enough to handle it.

Any number of people can approve, they carry an equal level of responsibility though. This can turn out very complex like: "I will not approve because John has not reviewed yet" or "Screw it, lets move to it production without review".
