If you have time, skim over it before we meet.

If you write code, you also need to read it. But this is a skill that doesn’t come for free when you’re learning to code. You will encounter new code bases, review others’ code, and troubleshoot code you didn’t write. In this webinar, we’ll share the insights we’ve gathered from years of reading code. You’ll learn how to focus on what’s important, narrow down the problem space, and give valuable feedback. We’ll also share some tips for prioritizing when troubleshooting and making it easier for others, including future-you, to read your code.


  • Agenda:
  • Approaching new code bases
  • How to find what’s important
  • Giving valuable code reviews
  • Troubleshooting
  • Asking good questions
  • Be kind to those reading your code
