Being a Better Programmer

I watched through the whole thing, and it is indeed an impressive collection of tips to becoming a better programmer. The videos cover a breadth of topics in a short period of time. To give you a taste, the first unit covers managing complexity, the single responsibility principle, separation of concerns, TDD and design patterns. And that’s only 2 minutes. It’s only about 20 minutes total, so you should watch them:

The videos have a strange feel to them, since they use public domain clips overlaid with After Effects-generated titles and effects. The visuals are not crucial and more often than not, result in curious juxtapositions of software wisdom with campy footage. Regardless, the content is great.

  1. Hi, thanks for sharing the videos. I just wanted to let you know that I’ve uploaded new versions of the videos (and have deleted the old ones). The content is the same, I’ve just re-recorded the audio tracks.
