Peer Review For Perl Code

The Code Review Ladder site has been around since September 2003, but really hasn't recieved much attention. I found a total of 3 replies in Super Search that mentioned it. Considering the frequency people ask to have their code reviewed, it seems like the site should be a lot more active than it is.

The site, set up by Simon Cozens, is "for posting and reviewing Perl code for style, efficiency, and so on". While intending to improve the quality of code on CPAN prior to uploading new modules, all code is welcome for review. There are only two simple rules:

  • If someone reviews your code, please review someone else's.
  • Be courteous.

Being a member of the list myself, I can attest to quality of the feedback. I am not trying to discourage people from asking for code review here at the Monastery, but here we are an all inclusive dumping ground where the list is specifically for code review. Please consider using the list to request code reviews even if you cross-post here or on other forums.

Cheers - L~R

    I was just discussing with skyknight that this might be a nice feature for PerlMonks to incorporate.

    As for the Code-Review Ladder, I like the idea that it is not for "Grade my Homework" list, and more focused on CPAN modules instead. I wonder if Simon will still be running it though, looks like he is saying a bit of a goodbye in this module:

    I have just released my 100th module to CPAN, the first time that anyone has reached that target. As some of you may know, I am getting ready to go back to college and reinvent myself from being a programmer into being a missionary. I don't forsee that many more Perl modules coming out of this.

    thanks for introducing me to the code review ladder. i posted my first module review to cpan today (which i also just learned about,) in response to a reply (above) by Wassercrats. although i think it's missing something (namely a rating for code accuracy,) i know i'll bookmark and remember that site.

    and if i ever am in need of a code review, and don't have a local resource to do it, i'll go to the code review ladder first--i've just subscribed.

    No list activity since May 9? Is it still active? The last post to the list seemed to go unanswered.
