Seven Pillars of Pretty Code

Whitepaper: Seven Pillars of Pretty Code:

"The essence of pretty code is that one can infer much about the the code's structure from a glance, without completely reading it. I call this 'visual parsing': discerning the flow and relative importance of code from its shape. Engineering such code requires a certain amount of artifice to transform otherwise working code into working, readable code, making the extra step to leave visual cues for the user, not the compiler. - Christopher Seiwald"
