Advent of Pull Requests Best Practice - Day 21

Following up on our previous discussion, here are additional aspects to consider when conducting pull request reviews, especially for contributions from less experienced developers:

  • Loop Errors: Keep an eye out for typical loop errors, such as off-by-one mistakes, never-ending loops, or flawed exit conditions. An example is incorrect loop boundary settings, which might cause skipping elements or accessing elements beyond an array's limit.
  • Memory Management Issues: In programming environments where memory is managed manually, be vigilant about potential memory leaks. This encompasses scenarios where allocated memory isn't released or when there are unnecessary long-term references to objects.
  • Error Management and Special Cases: Make sure that the code adequately handles errors and accounts for unusual scenarios. A frequent mistake is failing to manage null or undefined values, which can lead to errors during execution.

More insights on this topic are coming up, so stay tuned for tomorrow's update!
