Do You Think You Write Good Code? Michael Feathers, Senior Consultant, Object Mentor Inc RailsConf from O'Reilly Media 24 minutes, recorded 2010-06-08 This podcast is available at:  http://itc.conversationsnetwork.org/audio/download/ITC.Rails-MichaelFeathers-2010.06.08.mp3 The best programmers start off doing their programming in all the right ways. However over time, as Michael  Feathers discovers, inefficient or 'messy' code inevitably crops up from even the greatest programmers. Rather than  trying to fight this tendency in programming he suggests to his audience that a new approach is taken which  anticipates this natural tendency in programming. Looking at examples from business and academic research Michael Feathers' talk seeks to address the problem of  legacy code in software development. Taking some lessons from engineering outside of Rails he suggests that one  way to make code better is through understanding the counterintuitive lesson that bad code can sometimes be good.
