Book Review – The Clean Coder: A Code of Conduct for Professional Programmers

Lately I’ve been busy with somethings which I won’t  bother talking about in this post but this task have left me with no time to blog, but on the side I picked up a book by Robert C. Martin (uncle bob) which talks about the actions and behaviors of a software professional, and it is titled “The Clean Coder: A Code of Conduct for Professional Programmers“.

This book talks about professionalism in the software industry, what is expected of a software professional, when and how to say “NO” to your boss, etc. One of the editorial reviews read “The Clean Coder is much more than a set of rules or guidelines. It contains hard-earned wisdom and knowledge that is normally obtained through many years of trial and error or by working as an apprentice to a master craftsman. If you call yourself a software professional, you need this book”.

This book contains a handful of advice on a lot of things facing 99.9% of the software teams in our industry. You will learn how to setup and manage teams, how to collaborate professionally in a team, time management and estimation, and many more. This book is just 244 pages long and no matter the words I write here they can’t cover enough fact from the book, so I’ll advice you to pick it up and read no matter your level of experience.

Enjoy!
