A Handbook of Agile Software Craftsmanship Practical advice for the professional programmer Clean Craftsmanship by Bob Martin cover Agile Values and Principles for a New Generation Clean Architecture Grid Cover
Clean Code: A Handbook of Agile Software Craftsmanship The Clean Code: Practical Advices for the Professional Programmer Clean Craftsmanship: Desciplines, Standards, and Ethics Clean Agile: Back to Basics Clean Architecture: A Craftsman's Guide to Software Structure and Design
Best agile practices of cleaning code “on the fly” Software Craftsmanship. Endure and succeed amidst swirling uncertainty and nonstop pressure. Picks up where Clean Code leaves off, outlining additional ways to write quality and trusted code you can be proud of every day. A clear and concise guide to basic Agile values and principles. Perfect for those new to Agile methods and long-time developers who want to simplify approaches for the better. Direct, no-nonsense answers to key architecture and design questions.
"It is the best pragmatic application of Lean principles to software I have ever seen in print." —James O. Coplien, Founder of the Pasteur Organizational Patterns project “Some technical books inspire and teach; some delight and amuse. Rarely does a technical book do all four of these things.” — George Bullock ". . . [A] timely and humble reminder of the ever-increasing complexity of our programmatic world and how we owe it to the legacy of humankind--and to ourselves--to practice ethical development.” — Stacia Heimgartner Viscardi, CST & Agile Mentor “What is in the world of Agile development is nothing compared to what could be. This book is Bob’s perspective on what to focus on to get to that ‘what could be.’ And he’s been there, so it’s worth listening.” — Kent Beck "A good architecture comes from understanding it more as a journey than as a destination, more as an ongoing process of enquiry than as a frozen artifact." — Kevlin Henney

Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Even bad code can function. But if code isn’t clean, it can bring a development organization to its knees. Every year, countless hours and significant resources are lost because of poorly written code. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Noted software expert Robert C. Martin presents a revolutionary paradigm with
Clean Code: A Handbook of Agile Software Craftsmanship. Martin has teamed up with his colleagues from Object Mentor to distill their best agile practice of cleaning code “on the fly” into a book that will instill within you the values of a software craftsman and make you a better programmer―but only if you work at it.

What kind of work will you be doing? You’ll be reading code―lots of code. And you will be challenged to think about what’s right about that code, and what’s wrong with it. More importantly, you will be challenged to reassess your professional values and your commitment to your craft.

Clean Code is divided into three parts. The first describes the principles, patterns, and practices of writing clean code. The second part consists of several case studies of increasing complexity. Each case study is an exercise in cleaning up code―of transforming a code base that has some problems into one that is sound and efficient. The third part is the payoff: a single chapter containing a list of heuristics and “smells” gathered while creating the case studies. The result is a knowledge base that describes the way we think when we write, read, and clean code.

Readers will come away from this book understanding
  • How to tell the difference between good and bad code
  • How to write good code and how to transform bad code into good code
  • How to create good names, good functions, good objects, and good classes
  • How to format code for maximum readability
  • How to implement complete error handling without obscuring code logic
  • How to unit test and practice test-driven development
This book is a must for any developer, software engineer, project manager, team lead, or systems analyst with an interest in producing better code.

1.0 out of 5 stars Gedrucktes PDF!!!
Reviewed in Germany 🇩🇪 on November 7, 2017
Das Buch sollte jeder Entwickler kennen. Pflichtlektüre! Aber, bitte nicht hier bestellen! Was man bekommt ist ein gedrucktes PDF, welches dummerweise in der falschen Papiergröße bedruckt ist. Man hat also an den Rändern riesige weiße Flächen. Das Buch ist daher unnötigerweise ca 25% größer als das Original. Zudem ist die verwendete Tinte sehr hell. Die Codebeispiele sind kaum zu lesen. Das Cover ist im Vergleich zum Original verwaschen. Das Buch geht sofort zurück und wird im Laden (zur Ansicht) bestellt. Jetzt weiß ich warum die Lieferzeit auch 3 Wochen betrug. Das Buch wird offensichtlich auf Anfrage gedruckt.

Bei den beigefügten Bildern sieht man das Original (von der Firma) und das hier bestellte Buch (PDF Druck)

Reviewed in Germany 🇩🇪 on April 21, 2018
Meine Renzension bezieht sich ausschließlich auf das erhaltene Exemplar. Ich habe direkt bei Amazon bestellt (Verkauf & Versand durch Amazon), kein Marketplace.

Wie bereits von anderen Personen festgestellt, habe auch ich leider eine billige Kopie des Originals erhalten - vermutlich ein Druck der PDF-Version. Der Druck ist schlecht, das Format ist unnötigerweise sehr viel größer, das Cover ist verschwommen/verpixelt, kein bzw. weißer Buchrücken und -rückseite.

Hierfür über 29€ zu verlangen grenzt an Betrug. Ich habe das Exemplar unmittelbar zurückgeschickt. Schade.
