Beleza de Código

O fator mais importante que determina a qualidade de um software é a qualidade de seu código-fonte. Qualidade do código-fonte pode ser medida e analisada de várias maneiras, desde métricas objetivas de código-fonte como coesão e acoplamento até aspectos subjetivos como clareza e, levando ao extremo, beleza. Uma discussão sobre o que é a beleza no desenvolvimento de software.
