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?"

I tend to prefer languages like C++, C#, Ada and so on, because I am the opinion the language should be expressive to explore multiple abstractions and powerful enough to allow user types to behave like built-in ones.

Maybe that works for me, given the years I have been coding (since '86) and my background in compiler design.
