Code Review Research Highlights

In this talk, I will two recent studies that my Software REBELs research group has conducted of the topic of code review. In the first study, we analyzed code review practices when build files are the subject of the modification. In the second study, we use ML-based risk estimates to complement other high-level goals when recommending code reviewers for incoming tasks in a history-based simulation.
