Life of A Programmer — Session 4 — How can you become more skilled than your fellow employees.

PRINCIPLE 3: MAKE SMALL SELF-DOCUMENTING SOURCE FILES.

Each of your source code files should not be longer than three or four pages.

Each source code file should have lots of descriptive comments.

Each source code file should reference a section of your plan.
