Episode 17. What is beauty? A discussion about beautiful code

Every developer at one point in time runs into the question, what is beautiful code? Is it code that is expressed concisely? is it code that does a lot in a few lines of code. Well, while we’re not the DeveloperPeople’s magazine at least there are fundamental concepts that describe code beauty. And while there isn’t a consensus (what is beauty anyways), at least there is a baseline for code that is not ugly (hint. It’s maintainable). At least a conversation starter, this podcast covers the very minimum that code has to be to not be ugly!
