Beautiful Code

leave a comment

Beautiful CodeEvery programming language I’ve learned, every code sample I’ve inspected, and every algorithm I’ve analyzed have contributed to my knowledge and aptitute of programming very much, and have helped me extend my vision about software development. I always find articles and books written on programming very precious opportunities for self development.

Published by O’Reilly, Beautiful Code, is a special book in which important names from the software development community tell their stories about developing simple, elegant, and powerful programs.

I recommend this book to anyone who takes programming as an art besides its technical part, and who are willing to develop themselves to write better programs.

A little excerpt from the book:

A designer knows he has achieved perfection not when there is nothing left to add, but
when there is nothing left to take away. (Saint-Exupéry)

This is my new personal blog. I’ll continue writing my posts in English language here. My previous blog which is in Turkish language is also active at www.volkantunali.com.

I’ll post content essentially in three topics:

  1. Software Development, which is my job as a Computer Engineer
  2. Data Mining, which is my active research area for my PhD thesis
  3. Flute and Classical Music, which are my hobbies, actually more then hobby.
