John Kary on Writing Readable Code

Jeremy Ward shared a talk by John Kary with me a while ago that I revisit at least once a week. It’s called “Rethinking Loops”, and while it’s focused on PHP, the principles are applicable to writing good software in general.

What I love about this talk as that it deals with the subjective experience of reading and maintaining code. He explains what it really means for code to be “readable”, with plenty of great examples and practical tips.
