Clean code talks

Below are four fantastic talks (~30 min each + Q&A) on clean code and unit testing. I wish I came across them a few years ago when I was first starting out unit testing -- would have saved me so much pain.

If you're a developer with a few years down your belt, you should know why:
  • if statements are bad
  • new statements are generally bad
  • singletons are an anti-pattern
  • service locators were the pre-cursor to dependency injection
If not, watch the talks and you will feel much smarter!
