Code cleaning

I’m always in the search of the perfect code, the one that is good to read, clean, easy to understand. Rules can be apply to it (from Apple guidelines and Google Guidelines too), but I’m never satisfacted with the results. Time to create my own coding language?

Hello Brasilia!


Brasilia is the capital of Brazil (did you really think it was Rio or Buenos Aires?), and is located right in the middle of the Country. The city, curiously, was built in only five years (well, good part of it) and its structure has the shape of an airplane. I could cite a lot more […]
