General Development "You often hear about how important it is to write 'readable code'. Developers have pretty strong opinions about what makes code more readable. The more senior the developer, the stronger the opinion. But, have you ever stopped to think about what really makes code readable?"

Out of all the details you had to pick, you picked that one as pointless syntactic fluff?

Don't say that around Python programmers or users of various functional languages unless you want to get into a big argument.

Thanks, I'll keep that in mind ;) Been meaning to try functional programming for some time now, but never truly got around it at this point.

From afar, it always seems to be a mathematician-oriented way of coding, just like Labview's graphical dataflow programming feels like something designed by and for electronics engineers.
