Talk by Aron Beurskens
Programmers often complain when reading someone else 's code. It often seems that `other code` is very badly structured and readable in the eyes of the new maintainer.
But software development is a professional trade since decades and many books have been published about code quality and maintainability.
During the decades many insights have been gained how to create readable and maintainable code.
This talk is a summary of many code quality books and provides a set of ground rules which I apply during my code reviews. Learn on method level how to avoid common pitfalls and how to make other maintainer like you (or dislike you less).
