Rating: 5 of 5

"Clean Code" is code that communicates. But how do we write clean code? In this talk we'll look 5 simple practices that will help you write clean code. We'll see how each one reducing complexity and improves readability. We'll also look some of the common "Code Smells" in PHP and the refactors to clean them up. Don't worry though, we're not just going to "talk". All of these practices and refactors will be done with live coding demos to show you all of the little steps involved so you can start cleaning up your own code.

Presenter and his slides were very easy to digest. Best talk I've seen on this topic, at the basic levels for writing "readable" code. The ten principles makes so much sense, and great examples. Would love to see an entire workshop around this talk. Thanks.

Great talk. I don't agree with all of it, but what programmer ever does agree with every other programmer. :) Your talk gave me a few ideas as well.

Good, sometimes controversial ideas which were unfortunately hampered by legibility. Projectors work better with dark text on a light background at those sizes. Make sure your full name and Twitter handle is visible early in the talk. The last concept, symmetry, was glossed over a bit quickly. Could use more of a sales pitch on primitive obsession (not just what it is and how to avoid it, but why). Good use of audience participation, even if us reserved Minnesotans barely bite.

Loved this talk. Hit a lot of points that I/we've been thinking about and talking about, and a few that I need to work on. Great points for all developers to keep in mind as they inflict their craft.

Great takeaways with 10 practices outlined. Code snippets were helpful and easy to follow. Before and after approach was extremely helpful to see the value. Awesome talk!

Really great talk. Would love to also hear about suggestions and advice for teams to implement some of these practices that they may not be doing.
