On Clean Code
An argument about why clean code isn't always desirable
It may not be possible for us to ever reach empirical definitions of “good code” or “clean code”, which means that any one person’s opinions about another person’s opinions about “clean code” are necessarily highly subjective. I cannot review Robert C. Martin’s 2008 book Clean Code from your perspective, only mine.
That said, the major problem I have with Clean Code is that a lot of the example code in the book is just dreadful.
