  • Writing like a Developer

    Having spent a fair bit of time both writing and coding, I’ve noticed that these two seemingly disparate crafts have a lot in common. They share some vocabulary: we read and write code; a coding language has a particular syntax; Python even has dictionaries. More importantly, however, both disciplines have best practices, communal knowledge gained over years that we must…
