Is Agile compatible with Clean Code?

I’ve been through Agile training several times before at different jobs, and the current job is no different. June is Agile Training Month, and since I started last September I’m obliged to go through this again. Previously, we had a Clean Code Training period that lasted two months, and I realized today why I’m having such a hard time with the Clean Code part of the training.

The Agile process says that the product should have value to the customer at the end of the first month, and that the value to the customer grows as the development team puts more intellectual work into building out its functionality.
