The attitude among many developers seems to be that code reviews can be either honest or nice but not both. I see this as a false dichotomy; while code reviews should be both honest and kind, they should be focused on inspiring creators to go back to their work, excited to make it better. This talk introduces the Liz Lerman Critical Response process, a framework for giving feedback on anything creative. You will learn how to improve your code reviews by putting the creator in the driver’s seat and inspiring everyone on the team to make the product even better.
