Learn how to write code that everybody thinks is great. This book covers topics relevant to writing great code at a personal level: craftsmanship, art, and pride in your workmanship. This third volume in the Write Great Code series addresses the issues of creating readable and maintainable code that will generate awe from fellow programmers.

Volumes I & II of the Write Great Code series address an important attribute, efficiency, that is often ignored in modern software development. But no matter how efficient your code is, if it isn't readable and maintainable by others, then it's not great code. Great code must have a great design and must adhere to good coding standards. In this book, you'll learn things like coding styles, commenting, code layout, and other crucial coding tasks that are necessary to make your code truly great.
