Writing code that works and writing code that other people can read and understand are two different skills. And writing code that other people can read and understand became more and more essential skills as the project grows larger, and more people start working on it.
But because it is a skill, you need to train it consciously. It's a lot like writing essays and books. Everybody can write letters and words; many can also connect them in grammatically correct sentences. But not everybody is a J. R. R. R. Tolkien and have their books read by everyone.
An essential part of learning this skill is reading and analyzing other people's code on the one hand. And making other people read your code and give you feedback about it.
The speaker will talk about different methods of how to make programmers better writers and how to work out the skill of writing code that other people will want to read.
This talk needs project experience and coding skills and hence best suited for those with 1-3 years experience.
