Three interesting refrains of Coders at Work

Coders at Work: Reflections on the Craft of Programming is one of my favorite books about programming as mentioned in my 2012 book list and my post insights from Coders at Work.

  1. The importance of unpacking abstractions
  2. Code is written to be read
  3. Rewriting for simplicity
