DPCRadio:
Episode #2012-01 - Douglas Crockford, Programming Style and Your Brain
October 15, 2012 @ 10:21:57

The DPCRadio podcast series has returned with recordings from the 2012 edition of the conference. In this first recording they share the keynote given by Douglas Crockford at the start of the combined Dutch PHP and Dutch Mobile Conferences.

Computer programs are the most complicated things that humans make. They must be perfect, which is hard for us because we are not perfect. Programming is thought to be a "head" activity, but there is a lot of "gut" involved. [...] The systems in our brains that make us vulnerable to advertising and propaganda also influence our programming styles. This talk looks systematically at the development of a programming style that specifically improves the reliability of programs. The examples are given in JavaScript, a language with an uncommonly large number of bad parts, but the principles are applicable to all languages.

You can listen to this episode either using the in-page player, downloading the (rather large) mp3 or just subscribe to their feed to get the latest.
