Thanks for the update. Are you familiar with TeamReview? I like the way it integrates with VS.

Thanks. This is worth a try. I realize that using a tool would make sense here, and it's not that we don't want to use them. I work in a large public sector agency and introducing new tools is an extremely slow and cumbersome process. I'll take a look at Review Board.

Granted. However, not all devs are in the same place geographically. More importantly, the senior devs and architects doing the review are extremely busy (mostly due to numerous meetings), so they will have to do the review at their convenience. Should an important issue arise, we can of course have a one-on-one session. Good point though.

There seems to be quite a few threads on code review on StackOverflow, so I'm not sure why this would be wrong. But I'll try StackExchange.

comment Is there any scholarly research on the detrimental effects of a noisy workplace on productivity?
I remember reading Peopleware years ago. Have to track it down again. @btilly Exactly! Basic rule of statistics, correlation is evidence that, on its own, doesn't prove anything.

Open plan office undoubtedly promotes communication. Is that good or bad? When a dev is "in the zone", it may take 15 or even 30 minutes to get back into the "zone". Ten distruptions per day means a lot of lost time, not to mention the frustration that inevitably follows.
