Take control of your code with these programming best practices from Kevlin Henney. At JAOO Aarhus 2008 Kevlin used a trash can, vampires, a train wreck, whiskey and much more to make you understand and remember his 13 constructive points (a programmer’s dozen) about programming and code smells. As this is a must see, we made a video of the presentation for you:
The 13 points made by Kevlin are:
0. Prefer code to comments.
1. Follow a consistent form.
2. Employ the contract metaphor.
3. Express independent ideas independently.
5. Parameterize from above.
6. Restrict mutability of state.
7. Favor symmetry over asymmetry.
8. Sharpen fuzzy logic.
9. Go with the flow.
10. Let code decide.
11. Omit needless code.
12. Unify duplicate code.
Kevlin will be speaking at QCon London 2009 and JAOO Aarhus 2009, so if you like this video, come and watch.2008 JAOO | Tags: 2008, JAOO Aarhus, Kevlin Henney | 3 Comments »
