Read “The Art of Readable Code” by Dustin Boswell & Trevor Foucher: easy read, nice reminder of best practices but nothing new under the sun.
My favorite part is when they talk about checking if two ranges overlap: “One technique is to see if you can solve the problem the ’opposite’ way.” And indeed, it’s easier to check if two ranges don’t overlap.
Good evening folks,
I’m Rémi, a french programmer currently living in Quebec. I like to write nice programs, to read about computer science history, and I’m slowly starting to read books.
Also, I play traditional traditional music, like to write with fountain pens and to make dad jokes.
Programmer & musician, loves fountain pen, traditional music and finely written software.
