Comprehensible Code


About the topic:
The concept of clean code is well known by many developers. But if you ask them what it is, many of them mostly talk about software design. While naming and abstractions are very important in code comprehension, this talk is focuses on fundamentally important comprehension factor—code structure.

The talk covers three main factors that burden reading the code: unoptimized reading experience, visual noise, and obfuscated relations between code parts. The talk emphasizes on feedback loop, which easily breaks if we ignore details in our code. In the end every defect is a missed detail in a software system. Let’s not ignore what they try to communicate us!
