The Naked Coder

John D Mitchell in his blog on java.net today talks about the concept of Coding Naked. No, not coding without your clothes on, but coding with the attitude that anyone can see your code at any time and therefore you shouldn’t be ashamed of anyone seeing your code.

I’ve worked on projects before were this was a written and and for some an unwritten guideline, but it’s interesting to have it expressed this way.

Another way of expressing the same concept: ‘Refrigerator Code’ – code that you are proud of and would take home and stick to the front of your fridge to say ‘look what I did today’
