How can clean code and code quality reduce negative impact from issues with product delivery to avoiding security incidents?
The likelihood of an engineering org achieving its goals and the quality of its codebase are directly linked. Poor code can impact org-wide goals however, while quality code is important, developers often don’t have the bandwidth to prioritise best coding practices. As a senior engineering leader, you have insight into the negative effects of poor code on the org, teams and individuals - so how can you effectively communicate its importance and get everyone on board with improving and maintaining your codebase?
In this panel, engineering leaders will share their perspectives on how to leverage the expertise of different teams to improve code quality of the org as a whole. They will discuss how to communicate the ways that code quality impacts teams and suggest the best techniques that busy engineers can adopt to ensure they’re writing understandable and maintainable code.
- Learn how to implement effective clean coding practises into engineering workflows
- Ensure that the quality of the codebase becomes a shared responsibility throughout the engineering org
- Feel empowered to write the best code you can as a developer
