Programming Tips: Ideas for Simplifying Your Code

Hidden Gems Screencast

Programming tips and ideas for making your code easier to understand.

In last month’s Cincom Smalltalk Digest newsletter, we highlighted the Top Hidden Gems Screencasts of 2021. The Hidden Gems screencast is a series of live coding examples that share valuable insight into the product and inform you about things you may not know about. 

One recent screencast discusses programming tips and ideas for making your code easier to understand. Some of the concepts may seem obvious, similar to a doctor telling you to “eat healthy and exercise.” However, the outcomes can be profoundly positive, so it may be a reminder to use them, or, ideally, we will provide you with some new techniques. Watch these quick tips below or click here.
