Writing code that is easy to understand and maintain is crucial to the software development life cycle. Since Java is an object-oriented programming language, the code is already organized and grouped based on objects with properties and methods that are associated with each object. However, as a developer you still need to be cognizant of how you write your code. In this course, you'll learn how to distinguish between clean and messy code and the benefits writing clean code. You'll also learn best practices for adding comments to your code and how to fix messy code. Finally, you'll explore tools that can be used when writing and cleaning code. This course is one of a collection of courses that prepares learners for Oracle's 1Z0-811: Java Certified Foundations Associate certification.
