4 Writing Tips That You Can Apply For Coding

2) Simplicity Is Better than Flowery
Longer words don’t make you sound or look smarter. In coding, avoid writing clever or read-only code.

3) Read a Lot, Learn from Everything
A good writer needs to read a lot. In coding you can become good at writing code by reading a lots of other people code. This tips pretty much applicable to all professions.

4) Focus by Learning What Not to Do
