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. Martin has teamed up with his colleagues from Object Mentor to distil their best agile practise of cleaning code “on the fly” into a book that will instil within you the values of a software craftsman and make you a better programmer —but only if you work at it.

Fascinating reading not only for students of industrial design and design.
