I am currently having a website designed by a company, and I would like to get an outside review of the quality of the code, as well as to make sure that they are making progress according to schedule and according to what they say.
They are writing the site primarily in Java, with AJAX functionality.
Firstly, I have not done a code reivew before, so a few items:
I want this audit to be as much of a "surprise" as possible, so I would need to know a few things about this ahead of time: 1. What would my developers need to do to make the code visible to you. 2. What else would you need to conduct this audit. 3. What are the procedures for the audit process? 4. How are the results of the audit presented? 5. How much lead time do you need to prepare, and what do you need to know about the project?
