Our Unique Approach
the essential approach to clean code
Handling the quality of your entire codebase is disruptive and overwhelming. Clean as You Code takes an incremental approach by keeping the code you add or edit clean.
Clean as You Code
a simple, powerful approach
reduced effort on rework
How to get started
It takes a few simple steps to implement Clean as You Code.
In your IDE
Install Sonar's free IDE extension, SonarLint, to find and fix issues from the moment developers write the code. Addressing issues as you code helps you shift left and saves precious time because it's the easiest to remediate.
In your CI/CD workflow
Ensure your project is using a Clean as You Code compliant Quality Gate focused on new code - added or changed. Then, set a new code period that is relevant to your project. Once completed respect and enforce your quality by only promoting code that passes the Quality Gate. It's that simple.
Always go for green
The only rule that needs to be applied is the understanding that no project will be released if it's failing its Quality Gate.
Companies change on average 20% of their code each year
of the overall code is clean after 1 year
of the overall code is clean after 2 years
of the overall code is clean after 5 years
your new code is clean, always
No matter the type of your application, its current state, or your team expertise, Clean as You Code establishes a standard expectation across the organization for all New Code—added or changed.
gradually remediate old code
As complexity grows and software continues to evolve, developers inevitably touch existing code to make new changes. As every line of updated code goes through a Clean as You Code Quality Gate, old code gets progressively remediated in the process.
maximum impact, without the pain
Dealing with low-quality code is frustrating for developers, but organizations don't want to invest in fixing legacy debt. Fortunately, you can avoid both. Clean as You Code is the only approach that guarantees results without extra effort.
