Un consejo de programación de Steve Turner

Un consejo de programación de Steve Turner, un veterano programador de las épocas del ZX Spectrum:

The key to good coding is to make your source code clear with good succinct labels that make comments in most places redundant. I used to say to my programmers write code so that the cleaner can understand it. Then when you revisit a routine months or years later you stand a chance of understanding how a piece of code works. It just does not pay to write code that is tricky, too clever or too complex. […] Real clever coders use their brains to analyse a problem and come up with the simplest solution.
