Whatever paradigm, language, technology stack or devops strategy is used, we will always write code. And that code will need to be understood, maintained and evolved by various developers for many years, hopefully. It will be read 10x more time than it took to write it!
Then, tell me, how do you write your code ?
Stop rushing, and start writing professional code. You’ll need to learn to introspect your design, to make it express your thoughts in code. It may take years of practice to reach that point, but the path starts with the basic guidelines and ‘code smells’ that you ought to know, along with a core tool set of refactoring techniques.
As simple as some of these might seem, they will become the starting point of a lot of discussions about core principles of good software design, such as DRY, SRP, DIP, and KISS. Come and enjoy an entertaining, tangible presentation of key concepts in Clean Code, that will allow you to easily coach others, back at work.
Looking forward to share my passion with you: writing expressive code that is a pleasure to work with.
PS: In the end, let’s talk a bit about writing clean code using Java8 lambdas/Streams, shall we?
