Clean code, is it really worth it?

Track: Practices and other tech
As developers, we participate every day in our software life cycle adding new logic, adapting the existing one, and integrating with services or platforms. But, do we put the same effort into making software robust, maintainable, consistent, secure, clear, and tested? In this session, I will show the need for good practices in Clean Code along with the issues of not using it, showing concepts like Clean As You Code (CAYC) using free and open-source tools. Clean Code goes beyond the produced software and its programming language. Is a fundamental part of a developer's role growth, something that represents us no matter the language and the company where we work. Do not lose the thread.
