Description

Are you a technical debt generator? Do your co-workers cringe at the thought of having to work with your code? Clean code is the art of writing code humans can understand. Elevate your professionalism and increase your code quality by writing with the reader in mind! We'll walk through three core clean coding practices: 1) Select the right tool for the job. 2) Optimize the signal to noise ratio. 3) Create self-documenting logic. These practices are the foundation for a professional development career and provide developers a clear vocabulary for evaluating code quality.
