This week marks the beginning of my 16 week “Becoming a Better Developer” course.
Starting today I’ll be reading the first four chapters of Clean Code:
- Clean Code
- Meaningful Names
I’ve looked ahead, and I’m really excited by some of the excerpts I’ve read. I’m particularly enthused by Uncle Bob’s strong emphasis on short, uni-tasking functions and using meaningful, descriptive, and pronounceable names. Just following those two pieces of advice alone can dramatically improve anyone’s code.
I’ll report back on Friday with my key take-aways and highlights.
Have you read this book? What am I in for? Please let me know in the comments!
