Oscar Merida:
Smelly PHP code
November 09, 2012 @ 09:21:57

Oscar Merida has written up a sort of continuation to this series from Adam Culp about clean code, one that shares more tips on knowing when to refctor.

Adam Culp posted the 3rd article in his Clean Development Series this week, Dirty Code (how to spot/smell it). When you read it, you should keep in mind that he is pointing out practices which correlate with poorly written code not prescribing a list of things to avoid. It's a good list of things to look for and engendered quite a discussion in our internal Musketeers IRC.

His suggestions include things like "Comments are valuable", "Using switch statements" and a few other smaller ones involving error suppression, globals and prepared statements in database usage.
