I have faced many hard situations in whic Chapeau Robert Martin!! I have faced many hard situations in which estimation was the bottle neck of it. Also Test Driven Development and Testing Strategies are the fuel for me now to start working with this trend and I have great expectations regarding it.
I highly recommend this book for every developer who wants to be professional - and who doesn't?!! Sep 24, Richard rated it liked it. Mostly this book is pretty good. It's a series of anecdotes from the author's lifetime of working in the software industry. They are reminiscent of things you might see on thedailywtf, but they are followed up with an explanation of what the correct response to each situation would be.

This actually makes the book more readable than the previous one in the series, which was much more technical. It also makes it rather harder to apply to one's own life. It's not just a matter of running down a ch Mostly this book is pretty good. It's not just a matter of running down a checklist of code style points anymore. I guess overall the reader is left with a sense of the 'right' way to handle business interactions, but I fear it might be very quickly forgotten if he doesn't read it again and take notes.
It's interesting that many of the examples feature miscommunication caused by someone using ambiguous language to avoid a confrontation. The boss hears what he wants to hear and goes away.
The author considers this morally the same as lying. I think in England this use of language to avoid conflict is actually seen as a virtue, so I doubt we can stop doing it, but maybe he is right and we should be more direct. Of course I'm not convinced that project estimates are really the thing that should have been used in all the examples of programmers sticking to their guns against bosses, because I think the bosses must know that estimates are frequently out by a factor of ten and so it's not completely ridiculous to expect the programmer to shorten his estimate.
There is one problem which runs throughout: the nebulous definition of 'professional'.

- Clean Coder, The: A Code of Conduct for Professional Programmers!
The reader is constantly reminded that as a professional he ought to be autonomous and not afraid to say no to his boss when he knows more than the boss, or when asked to do something 'unprofessional'. Comparisons are made to doctors and lawyers. The problem is that these professionals are self employed. They are hired by clients but do not work for bosses. While it is possible for a programmer to be a self employed consultant in the same way, it is not the norm, and all of the examples featured in the book are programmers who are employees. There are examples of developing software for clients, but the programmers here are still employees of a consultancy firm and not directly engaged by the clients.
The confusion is worst in the first chapter, which almost made be abandon the book. The author seems to have completely bought into the propaganda used by American capitalists to justify treating their employees like shit. He tells us that we have a duty to work 60 hours per week - because we are 'professionals' and hence owe it to ourselves - but that since we are professionals we are also responsible for our own well being and hence we have no right to expect any sort of benefits from our employer.
Basically, he is expecting the wage slaves to work with the same fervour as the owners of the business. An excellent example of the truism "Socialism never took root in America because the poor see themselves not as an exploited proletariat but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires.

What does it mean to be a professional programmer? Is it wearing a suit and tie to work? Is it having certifications or diplomas decorating the walls of your office? Is it working hard, sometimes overtim In popular culture, computer programmers, sometimes confused with sysadmins, are often described as teenage punks, sitting in a dark, lit only by the glow of their monitor, empty cartons of pizza and Mountain Dew bottles scattered strategically around, frantically hacking away on their keyboard.
Is it working hard, sometimes overtime and weekends, just to show your dedication? To Uncle Bob, this is not what professional programmer means. The things commonly mistaken for professionalism, such as a dress code, are not what's important, at the end of the day. Having developers act professionally towards the code and towards each other, however, is. It's knowing when to say no even to the most persistent of managers, and saying yes by committing to a task, and standing behind your commitment. It's writing the best code possible by not sacrificing any of the principles of good coding practices, even in times of pressure.
It's asking for help and helping others, instead of hacking away with your headphones on. If you value your chosen profession, you should definitely read this book, especially if you are working in less-then-ideal corporate environment - it's up to you to drive changes in your work place, if the settings do not allow you to act professionally.
