Subject: code review!
Date: Sunday 20th July 2014 16:29:54 UTC (over 2 years ago)
Hi all, the latest GitMinutes episode - http://episodes.gitminutes.com/2014/07/gitminutes-30-luca-milanesio-on-gerrit.html - has made me wish for more code review. He makes a nice analogy: when coding you are in a tunnel, trying to get to the end, with very restricted vision. Other people, or you at other times, have a much broader view and can see differently. Regular code review would doubtless improve quality a lot. Also, it's an excellent way to spread knowledge about hledger internals and infrastructure, learn haskell idioms, and expand the pool of contributors. Thirdly, solo coding takes a lot of energy, but collaboration is energising. I wouldn't be surprised if it also improved quantity (speed of delivering new tested features). So: are there some of you out there who would like to help with a bit of review and make hledger better ? It's not just about code either: UI (web or cli), documentation, web presence and other topics could all benefit greatly. Here's what I'm thinking: I'll announce a code review topic on a sunday or monday. We then have four days for asynchronous email-based code review on the hledger list. On friday morning at say 9am PST (5pm GMT) we have a half-hour or an hour of real-time IRC-based review (on the #ledger channel, probably). Right after that I summarise the IRC chat for the mail list. How about this week ? Any ideas ? Any topic works for me; focussing on recently changed areas could be a place to start. -Simon -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "hledger" group.
