In Detail

How would you feel if the world's craftiest programmer went through every line of code that you wrote before it appeared on the user's screen? Everyone is not lucky enough to have a person to go through their code! Reviewboard is a powerful web-based code review tool that offers developers an easy way to handle code reviews. It scales well from small projects to large companies and offers a variety of tools to take much of the stress and time out of the code review process.

Based on the philosophy that "Merely using a tool is one thing, using it right is another", Getting Started with Reviewboard will guide you on a journey to mastering Reviewboard by teaching you how to publish a code review request through the Reviewboard web UI or command line.
