We, developers, spend most of our time reading code; we need to understand why it was written, how it works, and what it does. The sooner we understand the code, the sooner we feel confident to change it, so it's very important we do our best to keep the code clean and understandable.
Any developers who care about their work should join our meetups, regardless of their language(s) of choice; there's always something to be learned.
Our events will always focus on how we can be Improving Code!
As part of the work I’ve been doing for many years, I get to do a lot of code review. I usually document things that come up doing a code review so I can share it with other developers in the teams. In this session, I share some of the code I’ve looked at, the reasons why the code raised yellow or red flags in my head, and some possible solutions I’ve proposed.
