I suspect major code review cover up in my team. Too many code reviews are merged without any comment.
Seems to me like there's no such thing as a code review without a single comment.
How can I as a team lead properly monitor that my team is doing a proper code review process and how can I help them to maximize the process' benefits?
Thought people might want to know about any update. I tried a lot of suggestions that were given here. most were already in use. some helped a bit. However, the problem remained - some people continuously got bad code in when I was not looking.
I found that code review monitoring is not as helpful as giving my team tools to make their code better to begin with.
So I added a library named "jscpd" to detect copy pastes. The build failed on copy pastes. That eliminated one problem immediately.
next we are going to try codeclimate.
I am also doing a manual review on old code reviews once a sprint for half a day.
I am converting
todos into issues/tickets - as I found out people are writing them, but they are never handled at a later point.
I am also doing meetings with the entire teams to review code when it is appropriate.
in general it feels like we are moving in the right direction.
