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 was always a bit of a basic guy. I used several Basic languages in the past and i liked them because of their readability (the syntax and keywords itself).

Have you guys ever tried Ruby? You can actually write code that talks for itself. Bad Ruby code is identified when its not self-explanatory.

I really hate perl and python for their cryptic spaghetti mess you see in every project written in those languages.
