We all face a daily battle to write good code for ourselves and others, deliver finished applications fast to satisfy business, and ensure everything is properly tested to prevent end-user fails. In this talk we will discuss what “clean application development” is, and how it can help us win those battles. The talk will provide practical and usable examples to, integrate into your workflow, and continue to grow into good habits.

Good talk, lots of content, although maybe not so much for the experienced practitioner.

Using fewer words on the slides might enhance the impact of the talk. At times there was little difference between what we were reading and what was being said.

Great talk, great well, made points.

Cheers, Adam. A lot of content much should be common sense but so overlooked

Great talk, lots to take away

This was a great talk! I made lots of notes and the only one with a bold box around it in my notebook. The advice was:

"it's your responsibility to say NO!"

Thank you!

Really good talk about concepts but in the end gave me the impression Adam doesn't actually code.

Overall I didn't really like this talk. However, I feel for junior developers this would be an amazing talk to hear in your first year of programming.

I feel that it oversold the importance of coding style. Also, I feel that it would have been better if it was clear this talk was going to be such a basic level talk.

Adam provided some really good points on building clean code. This talk definitely left me with a few books to read!

Quite a bit of the talk centered over some aspects that you'd hope teams and developers already implement but would be great for more junior developers to take on. Despite this there was still plenty that I can take on and apply with my team.

Thank you so much!

It was nice seeing things mentioned in the talk that reinforced some things I've put into practice. As always, there's new things to learn and I picked up a few tips and things to start bringing into our development process at work.

Adam has a great, clear and concise speaking style, and +1 for wearing the kilt!

Lots of useful content and things to consider for junior level developers. Did also like Adam's clear and concise speaking style but didn't gain any new knowledge out of it.

FWIW: PHP_CodeSniffer was initiated in Australia not Germany.

This was a nice talk from Adam, plenty of things to take away. I've been looking at my functions that have more than 20 lines in them. Also good to get me thinking about Agile Sprints in start-ups giving bosses unrealistic expectations, as well as rough code.
