How To Write Code Worth Reading

Sten Christoffer Eliesen

Short talk - in English

Regardless of skill level, some programmers write code that is performant, bug free and works great, but is very difficult to read and understand, and thus difficult to maintain. It has become popular to champion for code that is self documenting. That’s great, but unfortunately this can lead to a hostility towards good comments. In this talk I hope to convince you why you should write comments. With examples I demonstrate how it can make your code enjoyable to read and not just to write.
