Rich Smith

Professor and Guide at ZenOfProgramming

Hi, My name is Rich and I've spent my entire career working with software. I am currently a professor at a local college where I teach students how to write good, clean, well-managed code!

I also spent many years at Microsoft where I worked with many great programmers and a few not so great ones. Programmers sometimes make the mistake of focusing too much on writing 'clever' code and not enough on writing clean, readable, maintainable code.

Over the years, I've come to realize is that it is a programmer's style that is the most important factor in getting the really good jobs. Unfortunately, it is the thing that is most often ignored in education!

Please join me as we look at how to improve our programming skills and style in order to become the kind of programmer that companies will pay anything to get!

Rich Smith.
