Feedback Ladders: The Code Review System We Follow at Netlify →

In an effort to make the levels of the feedback ladder easier to remember and use, Kristen came up with metaphorical names to describe each step. The idea is that you're living in a house that's still being built. Each of the 'inconveniences' we've listed (mountain, boulder, pebble, sand, dust) has a different level of impact on your day-to-day life in the house. For example, you may notice dust on the floor, but it doesn't impede your ability to live your life; on the other hand, a boulder blocking the door would quite literally be a blocker.
