Kyle Simpson describes a paradigm shift in programming

this free video lecture is one of the best descriptions of coding I’ve ever seen. It also describes a fundamental shift in style we can make to improve software development as a whole.

It's a great video, but it's not a new idea. For example Robert Martin wrote about this in his great book "Clean Code" and Martin Fowler wrote in his book "Refactoring: Improving the Design of Existing Code": "Any fool can write code that a computer can understand. Good programmers write code that humans can understand".

Ah, fantastic. Nice to have more information about the sources. He certainly does a great job of communicating the idea. Which is perhaps more important than the idea alone. Which is sort of recursively what he’s talking about :)
