Other: The Story Of The Code
Code isn’t just instructions to a computer. Code tells a story. What you write is an important as how you write it, and how you convey that story matters. What particular bug caused this line of code to be added? Why are we calculating things that way? What was the context of a particular design decision? All of this information comprises the story of the code. And yet, a lot of the time we just throw it away. We view the code as all the documentation we need. There is so much more to this story, much of it that may well be relevant to later decisions, changes and updates. So let’s not throw this all away. Lets look at the story the code tells, from Once Upon A Time to Happily Ever After.
