Clean code and code complete are for developers with already a few years of experience.
You do not understand those concepts until you have basics of IDEs, patterns, software, code sharing, working in a team, and so on.
First books should be about learning what sofware is, how a computer works and a programming language with CS basics. I usually add some Logic gamification to prepare the future dev.
I think the premise of this was for new developers,not beginners learning how to develop.
Sure. These aren't learn to code books, they are books for devs who are working and looking to level up.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
