When you’re working on a team with many developers, code reviewing with Gerrit is a great tool because it supports a distributed review method. The reviewer doesn’t need to be located near the developer to ask questions or give feedback but can do so directly in the tool. It might seem at first that this extra tool will add unnecessary overhead to a project, but anyone who has been doing code reviewing on a regular basis knows how much it improves the quality of the code. For an example of what the Gerrit tool looks like, see Figure 1-2.
