re: Livable code, embrace the practical mess VIEW POST


The purpose of clean code is to make the code easy to understand and so easy to change. Your « too clean » is not clean to me because it defeats the exact purpose.


I both agree and disagree with you on that one. Clean code is easy to understand and easy to change, totally agree. Cleaning code however is a process, an action, and any action can be overdone. Too clean might not be the best choice of words for the state that you have then reached, over cleaned would probably have been better. But the goal of that term is to get the picture across, and I think that the term did exactly that, just like clean code would :)
