Overview/Description
What do syntax, variables, objects, and classes have to do with clean code? Find out, as this course, walks you through some clean code myths and facts. Discover how code comments can help you to be understood! Learn the fine points of indentation, white space, and naming conventions. Learn about variables and naming conventions. Pick a case style for your variables and constants: camel, Pascal, or snake. Discover global and local variables, explicit naming, deep nesting, return statements, classes and objects, encapsulation, and public, private, and protected members. Also learn about inheritance and fluency.
