High standards for code quality can be easy to maintain with a small team. But as Matt Boynes, a partner at WordPress.com VIP Featured Partner agency Alley Interactive, found out, code quality was difficult to scale as his team grew in size.
He set out to solve this by instituting peer code reviews. Every single line of code would get a second pair of eyes. While it was more time consuming and created barriers for deployment, the benefits overwhelmingly outweighed the costs. As a team, they were able to pool knowledge, improve collaboration, onboard new employees quickly and deploy code more efficiently.
