Article: The Fine Art of Computer Programming

Discussion in 'Ruby' started by Christophe Grandsire, Sep 14, 2005.

  1. Hi,

    Just found this great article from the Free Software Magazine:

    http://www.freesoftwaremagazine.com/free_issues/issue_06/focus-software_as_art/

    It focusses on various issues about programming, like fun in writing
    *and* reading code, literate programming, etc... Since fun in
    programming is a recurrent theme among Rubyists, and there is quite a
    culture among us of clear, readable code, I thought it might interest
    some people here.

    As someone who read the METAFONT source code "for fun", I relate very
    well to this :) .

    You need a straight mind to invent a twisted conlang.
