My five mantras to write better software

20th October 2016 in London at CodeNode

There are 1 other SkillsCast available from LSCC Talks - October 2016

We are reading code for the most part of our days. Surprisingly, when a new feature needs to be implemented we sometimes forget that our code will be read lots of times in the future (by us or someone else). Dozens of books, articles, posts, etc have been written about improving our software. I've found useful to embrace some of the ideas expressed in these sources as mantras, and have them present at all times. In this talk we'll review them, and hopefully we'll discover new ones proposed by the audience.
