Programming Style and Your Brain – Douglas Crockford

In this talk from JAXconf, Senior JavaScript Architect Douglas Crockford discusses the relationship between programming style and your brain. Session Overview: The systems in our brains that make us vulnerable to advertising and propaganda also influence our programming styles. This talk looks systematically at the development of a programming style that specifically improves the reliability of programs. The examples are given in JavaScript, a language with an uncommonly large number of bad parts, but the principles are applicable to all languages. Filming from Marakana Tech TV.
