In my place of work we have some green fields code, but a lot of it is inherited. Does your Clean Code book describe how to handle legacy code or does it assume you're architecting from the ground up?
Thanks, Joshua Smith
Neither. It's simply a guide for transforming ugly code into clean code. The book has several examples, some small, and one reasonably large, of that kind of transformation. The book also sets for a set of traits that clean code has.
