Clean Code: Be The Hero

As developers, we are often under deadlines to get features and bug fixes out the door. We all know the story - we have to release, and time is pressing.

Cross-Platform
Ethics
Programming Languages

We've all been there. We've skipped a test, or forgotten to update some comments in the code to reflect the changes. Of course we know we shouldn't, and we always vow to come back later and clean it up. Sometimes we even keep our promises!

And then someone talks to you about clean code, and you think "I don't need another thing to slow me down - it works, I have other things to worry about, just let me code, okay?" Or maybe the concept of clean code is new to you and you want to know more.

In this session, we'll go through some of the core principles and advantages of a clean code philosophy, and delve into some code samples to see how this works in real life. Pro tip: clean code could actually allow you to be a lazier developer *and* be the hero in your team.
