Selected Pieces from “Elements of Style” Translated to Code

A session at WordCamp San Francisco 2012

Saturday 4th August, 2012

4:20pm to 4:40pm (PST)

We often use writing text as an analogy to writing code. This is incredibliy cool. There is a lot to compare – process, values, what good writers and good developers have in common, the art of creation, the art of communication. However, we rarely get down to the lower levels. The talk will fill the gap and will show how we can write better code using rules from the great Strunk & White book.
