Clean Coder Chapters 2&3

The readings from chapters 2&3 were mainly about knowing when and how to say yes and to know that it’s okay to so no. One must present themselves professional after stepping out and should be realistic regarding their commitments with the given tasks. Working on a particular task with so many responsibilities, we should know ahead what we are capable of before committing by saying yes, and it is completely fine to let the manager know that you won’t be able to finish the given task on time. Saying no is definitely very difficult for us, but by doing so, can prove to be beneficial by managing expectations regarding what is possible and what is not possible. These two chapters were very helpful and taught us how to deal and handle with various commitments and responsibilities in the workplace and be a professional programmer which are very helpful for us to build a successful career ahead.

Clean Code Chapter 1

The first chapter of the book, “The Clean Coder” by Robert Martin had many interesting concepts and points for building elegant software. It had few interesting points regarding professionality and how being profession is very important for a software developer. The first point I found interesting was regarding the ideas on making our code more readable, reusable and versatile. I like the way how the author states, spending free times learning new skills will greatly improve our coding skills and builds a better career. He also states that the code should be cleaner, flexible and it should be tested often for better results. It was nice reading the chapter and being introduced to few points about professionalism. As most of us are in the senior year and will be facing the work environment in the future, I think learning good coding skills will help us to build good careers.
