On code and natural language

Jan 9, 2012

I gave a talk about the importance of code readability and how it is tightly related to code quality. But what is the readability level we should achieve?

On October I gave a talk (actually my first one at a big conference) at Conferencia Agile Spain 2011. “Por qué Cervantes programaba mejor que tú” (why Cervantes wrote better code than you) was the talk’s title. It was a reflection about how code readability relates to other code quality principles and heuristics we use on a daily basis.

You can watch the talk right here. But be aware: it’s in spanish. The slides are availiable on Slideshare
