I'm currently working on introducing React in the company I work for. As the only one having done courses on the topic, who can I ask for a review to make sure the code is following 'best practices' and is implemented correctly?

    Um, have the other developers take React courses? – Robert Harvey Feb 7 '17 at 20:59

    @gnat Not a duplicate, but they are related. That question is asking what to do to make it easier for reviewers unfamiliar with a language. This one is asking who should be chosen to be part of the review. – Thomas Owens Feb 7 '17 at 21:27
  • @ThomasOwens you have a point, upon re-reading it looks like a bit different question (retracted duplicate vote) – gnat Feb 8 '17 at 10:16

There are other reasons to do a code review. If you have developers who are familiar with similar technologies, it may be useful to hold a code review meeting where you walkthrough the code and use it as a learning experience for the rest of the team. Their questions about what you are doing may help you find problems in your own code by talking through what you implemented and how you implemented it.

    Team rubberducking? :) – Nicklas Pouey-Winger Feb 7 '17 at 19:57

    @NicklasWinger Essentially, yes. Although hopefully your coworkers are more engaged and talkative than a rubber duck. – Thomas Owens Feb 7 '17 at 19:57
