Ramblings about software, research and other things

Code is for reading, docs are for writing

  1. The documentation is out of date, you’ll have to read the code. Make sure the code you write will be readable by others.
  2. Write documentation. Yes, it will go quickly out of date, but in the act of explaining how the software works to others, you’ll force yourself to acquire a better understanding of how it works.
