Roman Maeder
Organization: Wolfram Research, Inc.
Department: Kernel Technology

1992 Mathematica Developer Conference
Conference location

Boston, MA

Through design and tradition, each programming language has developed a certain preferred style of good programming. It is possible to solve the same problem in many different ways, but there is usually some idea about what is a good or a bad program. In this tutorial, examples of what the designers of Mathematica think is good programming style are presented. Reprint from the Mathematica Conference, June 1992, Boston. 22 pages.
