Behind the Scenes: How We Sped Up Our Code Reviews
As a startup, we have to be able to move quickly, however, we never want to sacrifice the quality of our code for speed. We are constantly looking for ways to improve the development process for our clients by expediting automation. Likewise, we try to improve our own software development process.
These improvements include efforts to streamline our work in Github. Previously, we had to run a new branch locally and verify the changes. In order to speed up testing and acceptance phases, we looked into Heroku Review apps, and integrated it into our Github workflow.
This integration automatically creates a new app for every pull request, after each commit. The shorter feedback loop allows everyone in our team to quickly check and test new features as we work on building them out. While this integration was not without its difficulties, we’ve found that by integrating this Heroku feature, it’s easier to collaborate with teammates, which has increased our productivity and the quality of our code.
Tool Tip: lookback.io – screen recording tool
Lookback.io is a tool that allows you to record real users using your app to help with user research, bug reporting, and feedback. Using the tool, all your recordings are held in a central location so you can refer to them as needed. Check it out to help simplify your testing!
