(real question) Is there a list somewhere of the Clojure friendly companies which are publicly advertising having a clean code base, and spending time making sure it stays that way? I am in the need, thx.


publicly advertising a clean code base is something companies do?

I remember seeing some doing that in their job page, as an argument to attract talents. The issue is that I did not bookmark them.

I feel like advertising a clean code base is like advertising lead-free breakfast cereal - that shouldn't be a distinguishing factor! All the same, if a clean code base was something a job page led with, that would get my interest.

Public advertising is probably better than no-info, but how do you solve the problem of "One person's clean is another's crappy"?

"Today's clean is tomorrow's crappy" is a thing too

The code quality is indeed something very subjective. But seeing “good code quality” as being advertised is always a good hint at one company’s culture regarding openness to improvements.


It's pretty sad if a company needs to advertise "good code quality" to differentiate themselves...


...and I'm not sure I'd believe a company that advertised that anyway.

I think there is one way to make sure code is “clean” by some reviewable factor: publish open source libraries


If a company does publish a lot of them, then I have a quite good idea about the quality of their code (as I can read it)

So if we’re searching for an example of this in the Clojure world, Metosin would be a good one; their Github is crazy:
