About the blog…
This blog was inspired by a series of talks that were giving at the Association of C and C++ Users in 2013. Pete Goodliffe spoke on becoming a better programmer, which had respected developers come up and do a mini-lightning talk on what they thought would help you to become a better programmer.
Deciding to take these lessons to heart, I decided to do exactly what they suggested for a year. The idea of this blog is to document how that goes, and possibly form the basis for a talk at next year’s conference.
This blog will not just contain code, but also recommended reading, links to useful sites, interviews with respected developers in the community and many other things. I welcome comments, and am always open to discussion.
