If you've been programming long, you've had the experience of looking at your own code and struggling to understand it. Worse yet is trying to understand other people's code. Every piece of code you write not only instructs the computer, it also informs human readers. What is it telling them? In this session, you will learn to listen to what your code is saying. You will see how choices about scope, visibility, coupling, and cohesion reveal themselves in your code. You will learn principles and practices for creating eloquent code. Examples will be in C#, but will be applicable to any object oriented language. You will come away with new ideas to make your code speak clearly and inspiration to be more mindful while writing code.
