These topics form the basis of good programming style and are important for anyone embarking on a career in professional programming or wishing to contribute to a software project. Normally, beginner programmers learn these good practices by going through a period of making mistakes and learning from them. This video helps to shorten that learning process by teaching a core of good practices and will enable you to become a productive programmer faster.
This video – Part 1 of the series – focuses on practices at the small scale, i.e. at the level of individual lines of code and fundamental constructs such as conditionals and loops.
