Review Board is a tool that helps developer teams do peer reviews on code. It serves as a quality assurance tool for software. Developers can point out issues within code and suggest different approaches to solve the problems they face during the development process.
I first met the Review Board UCOSP group at the code sprint held at the University of Toronto in mid-September. It was a three-day event where all the UCOSP projects gather and get know their own respective teams. My group consisted of four members: Jacob, Dave, Waleed, and myself. We have three mentors, Christian, David, and Mike. The mentors introduced us to the project and discussed the details of the code-base. They explained to us how things work and helped us decide on a feature to develop. Each student was tasked to build a feature of their own choosing. We now have weekly online meetings to discuss our progress and resolve any issues we are facing with our tasks. We also chat about other non-Review Board issues. It’s always fun to talk to the team.
I take pride in saying I’m working on the Review Board project. I would like to thank UCOSP for organizing the program, and the mentors for all the effort they put into helping us students feel comfortable about the project and assist us with any issues we come across.
