  • Michael Toppa: 10 Tips for Clean Code

    Michael Toppa: 10 Tips for Clean Code

    WordCamp US 2015Speaker: Michael Toppa

    December 11, 2015 — We want code that is easy to understand, re-usable, and flexible. But we are always up against deadlines, so we rush, and end up with code that is messy, buggy, hard to maintain, and makes us go slower even though we’re trying to go faster.

    What is clean code? In this talk I’ll provide some answers to this question, and introduce you to 10 good habits that will help keep your code clean, such as the use of meaningful names for your variables and functions, and following the “Boy Scout Rule” (leave the code cleaner than you found it). I will even try to persuade you that using a lot of code comments is a sign that there are problems with your code. I’ll also discuss the particular challenges of applying some of these techniques in the WordPress environment.
