We’re engineers. We create software infrastructure. People depend on the things we build. We consider sloppy workmanship irresponsible and potentially dangerous.
We know that short cuts taken in the interest of speed can quickly lead to delays or disaster. Taking the time to do things right from the beginning actually increases team velocity over the life of the project. In the words of Robert C. Martin, whose 2008 book Clean Code is our touchstone, we “take the time to go fast.”
The professional software engineering standards we adhere to focus on keeping components small, simple, and testable. They include:
Clean Code Developers
We’re professionals. We have degrees and years of experience in software engineering, and we continuously sharpen our skills by reading books, attending trainings, participating in user groups, and sharing our knowledge with each other.
We take pride in our work, but not for craftsmanship’s sake alone. The bottom line is, clean code works better and, in the long run, saves time.
