What ACTUALLY Makes Code Good

Code quality is one of the most misunderstood topics in software engineering due to a combination of engineering laziness and misinformation. This video will teach you:

  • What ACTUALLY makes code good and high-quality and why we're even software engineers to begin with
  • How to have proper empathy for the end-user
  • The common mistakes software engineers make when determining how good code is, including a very common misconception about how FAANG works
  • The true value of clean code patterns and how they add value to the end-user instead of just being buzzwords (that can potentially make the code worse when used incorrectly)
  • The #1 guiding principal when it comes to writing truly high-quality code
