As Karl Wiegers said in 2002 and Jeff Atwood echoed 11 years ago in 2006, peer reviews are 'one of the most powerful software quality tools available' and 'are the single biggest thing you can do to improve your code'.
The 4th September came around, and I entered the doors of Antelle to be greeted by Tony, who proceeded to show me around the office, especially the tea and coffee area and my workspace.
