Alan Cox on writing better software
This presentation by Alan Cox, famous for his work on Linux kernel, is worth propagating so I’m doing my part.
Cox doesn’t say anything new.
It’s a good thing, because usually new ideas turn out to be wildly incorrect.
What he says is a summary of known techniques for writing better software i.e. software with less bugs.
You’ll get similar tips from reading Code Complete.
Videos of this talk are also available.
