✨Lightning Talk ✨
Squeaky Clean Code: How to Develop and Adopt Better Coding Practices by Kristi Perreault
Clean Code is defined as code that is easy to understand, easy to change, and follows good standards. But what exactly are “good standards”? What does this look like in practice? How do we achieve this as a developer community? Kristi will answer these questions and more by discussing what makes for clean code, starting at establishing team coding standards and setting up a development environment, to cultivating thorough and living documentation, and ending with best practices and approaches in peer code reviews. Attendees will walk away with a better understanding of what best coding practices look like across any programming language and how to adopt them in their own projects and teams.
