Clean Codeby Wojciech Adam Koszek ⋅ Feb 13, 2017 ⋅ Menlo Park, CA
Take on clean programming. Unfortunately the book is entirely in Java and has a lot of Javaisms, but my overall impression was "fine"
This book is a classic for books about writing software, but in general I found it underwhelming. Java code is verbose by default, with all its
protected even refactored, you end up with a similar level of complexity. That’s the take I had from that book: several examples were indeed refactored and the end code was shown, but I had “meh” feeling about whether it really helped the program readability.
The “Code Complete” is waaay better.
If I were to recommend you a code quality book, the “Code Complete” would be it. I might be biased. If Java is your technology of choice, read “Clean Code” as well.
