The Very Tangible Benefits of Clean Code

Code Quality Directly Drives Technical Debt

Doing things right the first time, every time, will always lead to better outcomes in the long term. Bad software code will inevitably lead to the exponential acquisition of obstacles, dangers, hurdles, impediments, burdens, barriers, and hazards that eventually translate into higher development and maintenance costs, longer projects, and lower quality.

Here is our monthly curated list of thought-provoking books, blogs, podcasts, and articles discussing the current thinking and best practices around Code Quality:

Emphasis should therefore be on thoroughly automated tests of any and all business-critical software.
