Clean Architecture: Standing on the shoulders of giants

This post is part of The Software Architecture Chronicles, a series of posts about Software Architecture. In them, I write about what I’ve learned on Software Architecture, how I think of it, and how I use that knowledge. The contents of this post might make more sense if you read the previous posts in this series.

Robert C. Martin (AKA Uncle Bob) published his ideas about Clean Architecture back in 2012, in a post on his blog, and lectured about it at a few conferences.

Clean Code I: Arguments by Robert C. Martin (Uncle Bob)

Bad code slows you down. You write it under business pressure, because there is no time, the client needs the feature yesterday, the feature was sold before it was build, maybe even before it was ever thought of by the team, or any other reason. But the real truth is:

There is not excuse to write bad code!
