(Exact location not available) , Glasgow, GB

The voting from the last book club meeting nominated Clean Code as the book of choice. Since this may be a rather large book to digest in one go, we're just going to tackle the first part on the Principles, Patterns and Practices of writing clean code, which appears to be chapters 1 to 16 and represents two thirds of the actual book. You can get the book here:

There is no real formality to the event. Just read the book (or as much of it as you can) prior to the event and come along to discuss it. (You don't have to have read the book prior to coming along although you will get the most out of the event if you do.) We'll put together some questions to get the conversation started and we can all take it from there. If the book raises any questions for you then feel free to bring them along and we can use that as a point of discussion. Also, we will note down any books that were mentioned during the course of the event to put in the poll for the following event. If you want feel free to let us know of any other books you may be interested in.

We will be meeting at Waxy O'Connor's on West George Street. If you are travelling from Edinburgh, the pub is 2 mintues walk from Queen Street Station, if that.


We meet up at 19:00 with the discussion on the book kicking off at 19:30.

If you have any suggestions for books to discuss please let us know by emailing us at [email protected] and we'll put it in an upcoming survey for a community vote.
