Discussion about good code at DallasTechFest 2014

Many programmers are dedicated, or even obsessed, with writing “good” code.

Often we follow certain patterns and practices because we believe they are the best solution for the problem, or because the experts tell us so. There are many quasi-religious wars about proper ways to write code; those wars last years, inflame the most peaceful communities, and make many heads spin.

While it is easy to argue whether a particular piece of code is good, it is hard to come up with an overall idea of what makes code good. We had an interesting discussion about good code at Dallas TechFest, with a great crowd of fellow developers.
