Effective Code Reviews for the whole team

Opening a pull request for code review can be a vulnerable thing. A lot of care and energy goes into writing code, but we often lose sight of this when reviewing, thinking that if we communicate the information we need to, it doesn’t matter how it’s communicated. But humans write code and receive feedback, and if humans are made to feel stupid or inferior for making a mistake or doing something differently than the reviewer, that can impact how feedback is received, and how the author will approach writing code in the future.
