The Current State of Code Quality 

As software development evolves, keeping up with best practices, the latest trends, and ensuring your code remains top-notch can feel like sailing uncharted waters. Fear not, for that's where we come in with our latest initiative: 


At Sonar we believe in the power of Clean Code which means that your code can evolve and execute flawlessly, leading to software that is maintainable, reliable, and secure. 

On behalf of the Developer Relations Team, I am thrilled to announce #CleanCodeTips, a dynamic program crafted by our Developer Advocates, Community Managers, and Product Developers! Our mission? To demystify the complexities of modern software development and offer you the tools, tips, and tricks to write code that is consistent, intentional, adaptable, and responsible. We’re here to provide practical, bite-size tips to help you integrate Clean Code practices into your everyday work.

What’s on the Menu?

#CleanCodeTips is not your run-of-the-mill program. We’re talking about a mix of content to cater to every learning style out there! 

  • Weekly Tweets: Our infographics will not only educate but also inspire you to push your coding limits, spanning 30+ programming languages! 

  • Video Tutorials: Get up close and personal with code through our upcoming video demo series! From beginner basics to advanced techniques, our videos are designed to keep you on top of coding best practices.

  • Blogs: Our Developer Advocates will take a deep dive into the announcements, updates, and hottest trends of the coding world! They will also highlight the most common pitfalls developers often face in their personal projects, using telemetry data from Sonar users.

  • Ask Me Anything Sessions: Ever wanted to pick the brains of industry experts? Our Ask Me Anything (AMA) sessions with our developers will give you the chance to ask questions, seek advice, and gain insights from the best in the business!
