14 hours (usually 2 days including breaks)


There are no specific requirements needed to attend this course.


Why do we need Clean Code? Programs evolve, therefore the code is continuously updated it can be very, very difficult to go back through unclean code to find and update the source code on average, the cost of writing the original code is only 40% of the total cost of a system; 60% of the cost, on average, is spent maintaining and updating code. Bad code dramatically increases that 40/60 ratio, bordering on 20/80 in the worst cases; the more unclean the code is, the more time we just spend updating it.
