Writing: Improve code by removing it

The July 2009 issue of ACCU's CVu magazine is about to land on doormats over the world. It contains my latest Professionalism in Programming column entitled: "Improve code by removing it".

It does what it says on the tin.

When I first wrote it, the article was really ropey. Then I trashed half of it, and it looked a lot better. I took out a couple more paragraphs and it was almost perfect. Then I took out the rest of it, leaving just a title and the author bio. Now it's marvelous.

Shame you couldn't get the article perfect in time for April's issue.
