The art of computer science

When you write a program, think of it primarily as a work of literature. You're trying to write something that human beings are going to read. Don't think of it primarily as something a computer is going to follow. The more effective you are at making your program readable, the more effective it's going to be: You'll understand it today, you'll understand it next week, and your successors who are going to maintain and modify it will understand it.

    I read Donald Knuth book "The Art of Computer Programming" multiple times while in college, looks like you are also a fan of him, great to know it :)
