Even flawed code can run. However, unclean code can knock a development team to its knees. Poorly written code results in the loss of countless hours and major resources every year. However, things don't have to be that way. With Clean Code: A Handbook of Agile Software Craftsmanship, renowned software guru Robert C. Martin introduces a breakthrough paradigm. Martin has collaborated with his coworkers at Object Mentor to condense their best agile technique of cleaning code "on the fly" into a book that, if you put the effort into it, will instill in you the values of a software craftsman and improve your programming. What sort of employment will you have? There will be a lot of reading of code. You will, too. You will be asked to consider both the positive and negative aspects of that code. More significantly, you will be forced to reevaluate your devotion to your trade and your professional beliefs.
