DEFINITION

what is clean code?

Clean Code is code that’s easily understandable, portable, and capable to change through structure and consistency but remains maintainable, reliable, and secure for performance demands.

Clean Code is well-documented coding standards that are clear and concise for increasing developer collaboration and communication.

BETTER BUSINESS VALUE

why clean code?

A clean codebase simplifies the principles and processes to introduce changes to your code allowing business goals and objectives to be prioritized. Ensuring code readability improves team collaboration, communication, and code review processes across your enterprise.

Explore Clean Code
OUR UNIQUE APPROACH

Clean as You Code™

Clean Code as you write maintainable, readable quality code. Sonar’s tool kit allows you to continually review and make incremental clear quality improvements as you edit or write code. Deliver high-quality, efficient code standards that benefit the entire team or organization. 

Achieve Clean Code

Clean Code results in software that is:

secure

Clean Code is secure through early detection and feedback of security vulnerabilities and hotspots during code review.

Learn More

reliable

Clean Code creates and sustains reliability. When your software is reliable, anywhere and anytime, it creates trust among your teams and customers.

Learn More

maintainable

Clean Code makes maintenance easy. A codebase that is maintainable enables an optimized development workflow for more scalable software.
