  • Clean Code: A Handbook of Agile Software Craftsmanship By Robert C. Martin Even bad code can function But if code isn t clean, it can bring a development organization to its knees Every year, countless hours and significant resources are lost because of poorly written code But it doesn t have to be that way Noted software expert Robert C Martin presents a revolutionary paradigm with Clean Code A Handbook of Agile Software Craftsmanship MEven bad code can function But if code isn t clean, it can bring a development organization to its knees Every year, countless hours and significant resources are lost because of poorly written code But it doesn t have to be that way Noted software expert Robert C Martin presents a revolutionary paradigm with Clean Code A Handbook of Agile Software Craftsmanship Martin has teamed up with his colleagues from Object Mentor to distill their best agile practice of cleaning code on the fly into a book that will instill within you the values of a software craftsman and make you a better programmer but only if you work at it What kind of work will you be doing You ll be reading code lots of code And you will be challenged to think about what s right about that code, and what s wrong with it More importantly, you will be challenged to reassess your professional values and your commitment to your craft Clean Code is divided into three parts The first describes the principles, patterns, and practices of writing clean code The second part consists of several case studies of increasing complexity Each case study is an exercise in cleaning up code of transforming a code base that has some problems into one that is sound and efficient The third part is the payoff a single chapter containing a list of heuristics and smells gathered while creating the case studies The result is a knowledge base that describes the way we think when we write, read, and clean code Readers will come away from this book understandingHow to tell the difference between good and bad code How to write good code and how to transform bad code into good code How to create good names, good functions, good objects, and good classes How to format code for maximum readability How to implement complete error handling without obscuring code logic How to unit test and practice test driven development This book is a must for any developer, software engineer, project manager, team lead, or systems analyst with an interest in producing better code.

    These are rather notes than a review while reading 1 Use very descriptive names Be consistent with your names.2 A function should not do than one thing 3 SRP Single Responsibility Principle a class or module should have one, and only one, reason to change.4 Stepdown rule every function should be followed by those at the next level of abstraction low, intermediate, advanced.5 A long descriptive name is better than a short enigmatic name A long descriptive name is better than a long descriptive c [...]

    The first half of this book is well worth a read Then I was reminded of Martin Fowler s I think comment that the original Design Patterns Elements of Reusable Software book was a response to the limitations of C It dovetailed so well into Java because Java has a lot of the same annoying limitations, and in some ways is even harder.The latter section of the book contains some worked examples that I didn t always agree with because they seemed to be totally over done A lot of the refactorings came [...]

    This book makes some very good points, sometimes taking them to extreme Never write functions longer than 15 lines Never write functions with than three arguments Some of these points were quite new and useful for me YMMV It s too Java specific in a few places, and reading the last refactoring chapter on a kindle was quite a challenge, but otherwise it was well worth a read At least I got a clear picture of how I want to refactor a big piece of my current project after reading this

    I had a tough time deciding between 3 or 4 stars.The book should be called Clean Java Code Some of the concepts definitely translate to other languages, but it uses Java for all of the examples and some of the chapters are dedicated to Java specific issues I consider many of the the suggestions to simply be common sense, but I ve worked with enough of other people s code to realize they don t necessarily agree With all of that said, I d definitely recommend the book to Java developers at the beg [...]

    If you are a programmer, you must read it full of good examples of how to write clean and readable code.

    There is a movement brewing in the world of professional software development This movement is concerned not merely with writing functional, correct code, but also on writing good code Taking pride in code This movement is the Software Craftsmanship movement, and one of the people near the head of this movement is Robert C Martin, also known as Uncle Bob.His book Clean Code is, in many ways, an introduction to the concept of Software Craftsmanship and a guide for developers interested in becomin [...]

    Many good points in this book Unfortunately, almost all of them are overdone Yes, you should write short functions, if possible Yes, you should have functions that do one thing.But no, one thing does not mean you should tear an algorithm apart into twenty little funclets that make no sense on their own.Basically, like another reviewer wrote, the first part of the book raises many good points, and the second part of the book then merrily applies these points way beyond their usefulness Read the b [...]

    I had a tough time deciding whether I really liked or It was amazing I liked the writing style of the book Its simple, clean, and well crafted.First few chapters of the book makes good practical advice from naming variables functions classes to writing functions to testing Most of the smells and heuristics I found in these chapters can be found in real world as well.Complexity kills It sucks the life out of developers, it makes products difficult to plan, build, and test Ray Ozzie, CTO, Microsof [...]

    This is a book that one could get started on the idea of good code clean, readable, elegant, simple, easy to test, etc It has the usual stuff that you d expect good naming convention, testable code, single responsibility, short classes, short methods but I feel like it takes them on overdose, going to extremes IMHO such setting short explicit lengths, forbidding certain constructs, and what seems like refactoring for the sake of it.I d actually recommend other books like the Pragmatic Programmer [...]

    Craig Vermeer
    This had lots of good, practical advice that spanned everything from naming to testing to concurrency A lot of it was pretty Java centric, so I skimmed a few sections.By far the best portions of the book were the ones where the author demonstrates step by step his process for writing code test first, as well as refactoring If you get frustrated with either of the two at times, these parts of the book are fantastic , because you see that even someone who s been coding for 40 years like Uncle Bob [...]

    Nothing new for experienced developerToo Java oriented in many places Code Complete, 2ed is better from my point of view

    I wanted to love this book, but instead I just sort of liked it This book is a member of the extensive genre of books on how to write clean code It sits alongside books like Code Complete by Steve McConnell 1 and many others Where Clean Code promised to differentiate itself was in the use of three case studies about a third of the book showing Martin s code cleanup techniques in action However, I was disappointed by that section As someone who codes and reviews code professionally, the case stud [...]

    Writing clean code is what you must do in order to call yourself a professional There is no reasonable excuse for doing anything less than your best Honesty in small things is not a small thing In code, refactor mercilessly The French poet Paul Valery advises us that a poem is never done and bears continual rework, and to stop working on it is abandonment Learning to write clean code is hard work It requires than just the knowledge of principles and patterns You must sweat over it You must prac [...]

    I hate to say this, but I wasn t as impressed with this book as I thought I should have been, given its place in the pantheon of programming books.The first half was excellent, but the second half left me a bit cold It was too Java y, and had dare I say it too much code in it.However, I still list this as a must read for all developers.

    I should have read this book at the beginning of my career On the other hand, after 10 years experience I may appreciate it even It is sad, that principles described in the book are not yet heavily adopted.

    Definitely worth a read

    Stefan Kanev
    It s a great book The only reason I give it four stars instead of five is the extremely awkward use of private fields for passing data between functions in the examples.

    Mohammad Mahdi Ramezanpour
    This is one the best books for programmers and I think every programmer should read it The only problem this book has is some parts of it is written specifically for Java developers so, you may want to skip them, if you re not a Java developer.

    Yu Chao
    It provides some noteworthy principles to keep your code readable and clean However, personally, I still prefer the get things done approach rather than spend tons of time doing code cleaning while completing little.I see that Martin really regards software development as an intricate art formwhich I hardly agree I see coding of a technical tool So that s probably the reason why I found this book quite uninteresting.

    You re joking with this productivity vs time That s old oversimplified thinking It has some truth, but also it produces fast shortcuts that later lead to blue screens in MS presentations I probably would always remember them, haha.No, even recent, Surface tab crashes on presentation Where s you productivity now This is all shit, because I can create complex website in a few weeks, but then I would need months to fix various bugs e.g provide support I always say those meaningless unproven by pro [...]

    I loved and I agree with the clean code values the book embodies.Also, I loved the slight extremism of the rules never write a function than 15 lines, never use than 3 arguments Of course I will break those rules But remembering Uncle Bob s fervor when stating the rules, I will always make sure to have a good reason to break them.The major drawback is that the book is very Java centric and the examples didn t prove as practical for me, as they could ve been Abstract classes, interfaces, class [...]

    This book is repetitive at times and mentions content already covered in some of the other books in the Robert C Martin series I think part of this repetition is due to many of the chapters being authored by different writers, which also occasionally prevents the book from flowing smoothly.The book is a quick read and raises some interesting arguments on how code should be written However, if you ve read other books in the Robert C Martin series, you might skip this one Or if you have the chance [...]

    Mahmoud Tantawy
    One of the best books about Software Craftsmanship , a must read, specially Chapter 17 Smells and Heuristics.A lot of positive reviews have been written about it so i ll just add what i think can be improved.The book can be a bit boring specially if you are not a Java developer, and even if you are, it is outdated so examples can be a bit misleading and or seem strange, it is written when Java 5 was new I d love if a modern revision of the book is published with modern examples and may be less l [...]

    Uncle Bob s book was given to me by a mate at work when I first started I was introduced to the concept of code reviews and pull requests and told to expect a lot of comments on my code reviews to start with I was then promptly given this book to read to minimise the pain As a developer with ten years experience, I had seen so many of the things outlined by Uncle Bob and absolutely loved his remedies to them I am now a convert to the idea of clean code and it has definitely made me a better deve [...]

    Pablo Dias
    Reading this book was a slight deception, not because of the content, but mainly because it s a bit messy The chapters don t correlate with each other very well, and the examples of refactoring are very boring Java s fault Even with an excellent conclusion, that summarizes very well all the code smells you must avoid, it didn t impact me the way The Pragmatic Programmer did I really hope this book works better with less experienced programmers, though.

    Smells and Heuristics .

    Anton Antonov
    Another must read for software developers It s a time saver for every company and new worker that wants to start writing good, quality and maintainable code for companies.

    This book is 1 on my list of books I d recommend to other programmers I don t know how else to elaborate on how important I think the ideas in this book are.

    One of the best programming books I ve ever read
