Review Assistant

Make the Best of Code Review with New Visual Studio Add-in!

July 31, 2012

Today, Devart is pleased to announce the final release of the code review tool — Review Assistant's first version.

This tool has been designed to aid software developers in peer code review. Our development teams have been developing and perfecting Review Assistant in the working process for some time. And since we use this code inspection tool ourselves, we sincerely hope that its first version will help other companies that want to improve their code quality while saving time and money.

Key Features

Integration into Visual Studio:
Switching between different tools isn't necessary anymore, so you can concentrate on the working process, inspect colleagues work and leave notes within the project context. Track other users' comments right in the IDE.

Simple code review process:
Say good-bye to tedious formal meetings. Our Visual Studio add-in is easy in setting up and usage, flexible workflow settings can be adapted to your existing review schemes.

Integration with popular VCS's:
To help users start code review, Review Assistant integrates with popular version control systems such as TFS, SVN and Hg.

Threaded code discussion:
Mark comments as defects, discuss comments, track discussions — all this without formal meetings.

Formal reviews:
Lightweight support for reglamented but not restrictive code revision schemes includes primary roles, defined stages for reviews and discussions.

Ad-hoc reviews:
Leave an inline comment, mark it as a defect and assign a person to fix it — without starting a formal review process.

Integration with code comparison tools:
Review Assistant integrates with code comparison software to facilitate code change tracking. Try Code Compare, our popular comparison tool.
