Interpersonal conflicts in code review
by Pavlina Wurzel Goncalves
Code reviews benefit from generating alternative ideas and obtaining diverse feedback. However, this makes code review a place in which communication is difficult and interpersonal conflicts can arise.
Pavlina Wurzel Goncalves from ZEST (Zurich Empirical Software engineering Team), University of Zurich, will present a broad qualitative study that investigates interpersonal conflicts in code review. You will hear how common these conflicts are, conflicts’ negative but also positive consequences, and strategies that can be used to manage conflicts successfully. The publication with the results is available at ArXiv.
Pavlina may be conducting her future studies with Red Hat – if you use code review and are interested in this topic, come to attend the talk or email Martin Ukrop.
