'Bad code' is easy to document and 'Good code' doesn't need to be documented very much. Stop spending time on things that you don't enjoy doing and that are not helping anyone. Lots of documentation containing no new information is just waste the time of every developer that has to read it over and over again.

This talk discusses how code and documentation can be improved by writing less of the latter and touches on related clean code topics.

I very much like the way the presentation is delivered in a "light" way, a speaker that comes over very natural. Talk was a bit chaotic at times, but overall a good delivery.

Good interaction, nice opinions and point of view. It would have been nice to also have some more examples of good comments, and where they _are_ appropriate.
