Alberto Bacchelli is an Associate Professor at the University of Zurich in Switzerland. His talk describes a series of studies showing that programmers don't treat all files equally when doing code review, which can have significant impact on their projects.

On April 27, 2022, It Will Never Work in Theory ran its first live event: lightning talks from leading software engineering researchers presenting immediate, actionable results from their work. Our audience learned: - powerful new ways to test modern software - how to do better, smarter code reviews, - what effective remote onboarding means during the pandemic, - whether test-driven development actually makes you more productive, - and what "productive" really means for programmers.
Their slides, and over 250 reviews of software engineering research papers, are all available on https://neverworkintheory.org.
We are grateful to Strange Loop, Mozilla, and Taylor & Francis for their support, and we hope you'll join us at Strange Loop 2022 in September for more insights.
