code review

More code review tools (on GitHub)

GitHub has improved their code reviewing tools:

Effective code review catches bugs before they’re deployed, improves code consistency, and helps educate new developers. We’re adding new features to make code review on GitHub faster and more flexible.

A few include a handy timeline indicator showing what you might’ve missed after reviewing a pull request, and a way to filter filters in a pull request by type (e.g. maybe you just want to look at the CSS files).

Case Study: jQuery Fixer Upper

We'll look at some jQuery code that a CSS-Tricks reader posted in the forums. We'll suggest ways to improve the code to make it more efficient and more extensible. We'll also make some guesses about the HTML that it goes with and discuss improvements there.
