Yes I’m early with this one but I need a bit of advice.
The challenge for Day 9 of 30 days of agile testing is to pair with a developer on a code review.
On testers.chat recently I was advised to do just this but, honestly, it terrifies me! I was previously a developer (developing in MATLAB) but I feel like my current knowledge of programming languages limits me. Maybe it’s imposter syndrome but I’m not sure where to start.
Ahead of Day 9, how can you identify risks in code for a language you’ve never seen before? How do you approach this? Do we need to have these programming skills? Or can you participate in a code review without them?
