TriPython November 2016 Meeting: The Code Review Review
"Your code is bad and you are bad. Have a bad day." It seems like a lot of code reviews head that way, but we can turn this around. Constructive Code Review is a new part of Mozilla's onboarding process, a cultural nudge toward fostering encouragement, spending the right amount of time mentoring newcomers, reducing nitpicking without wrecking quality, and understanding our own crazy human emotions. Join us (and bring your stories) for a session devoted to bettering code, coders, and our use of time. Our presenter is Erik Rose. Erik makes static analysis, search, and pattern-finding software at Mozilla, venting a byproduct of eclectic Python libraries. Skeletons in his closet include the self-bootstrapping mechanism for Let's Encrypt, the hash-verification functionality in pip, and a book about Plone. He's a frequent speaker and keynoter at various PyCons but is really just using the travel as an opportunity to find the world's best root beer. Extemporaneous "lightning talks" of 5-10 minute duration are also welcome and don't need to be pre-announced. Plenty of free after hours parking is available in the upper level of the deck behind WebAssign (turn through the median just before the intersection of Varsity and Main Campus Drives). If the door is locked, call the number posted on the door. An after-meeting location for food and beverage will be decided at the meeting (usually BaDa Wings for the Thursday night draught specials).
