"Uncle Bob" Presentation on "Clean Code."

Great video. Although the demonstrated code is Java, the principles apply to Clarion as well.


Thanks Don, enjoyed it! A big part of it is motivational, to encourage you that after you write “Working Code” to take the time to go back and make it “Clean Code”. I took a few notes and quotes I’ll post soon …

Takes a while to get to the topic of writing “Clean Code” so suggest best to open the link in YouTube which has the below links to jump to. I would skip to 32:13 “What is a Clean Code”, or for a bit on project team management 24:28 “Why are Programmers so slow?”, answer “because programmers that go fast make a mess (not clean code) so are slow in the long run”.
