I like the fact that Angie Jones talks so calmly and slow. Makes getting what she's saying more effective for me at least.

These are some really great tips, especially helpful in hardening new devs from being discouraged by those early code-reviews that can feel so challenging. I really liked the point of giving the reviewer the benefit of the doubt and being the bigger person. It's a good rule to live byπŸ˜‰

Lots of great tips for new developers! You have put a lot of my anxiety at ease as I pivot into software development.

I appreciate her real-life scenarios! Our egos are always involved and she is offering wisdom on how to best approach everyday scenarios that sometimes we think we are above. Very helpful!

I love how Angie's talk is taking a really complex and important situation and breaking it down in a way that allows new devs to get ahead. I'm learning so much from her. I look forward to saving this information for later. Thank you, Angie!

I love the examples of Respect, Learning to let Go... It is hard to give up the hammer of guilt is an aspect that I could relate to. I especially like that her own experience is down to home and so light. Excellent analogy on taking on the aggressor with love and no judgement.

I love the advice she gave. It is very easy to get defensive in code reviews. Sometimes people need to realize they need to relax and be open-minded.

Amazing talk, Angie, and great advice.

These are great tips! Going to send this video to my roommate, we were talking about how he could be less blunt with his code reviews of the junior developers on his team and this was spot on to our conversation.
