Publish Your Computer Code: It Is Good Enough [link]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex

I am a professional software engineer and I want to share a trade secret with scientists: most professional computer software isn't very good. The code inside your laptop, television, phone or car is often badly documented, inconsistent and poorly tested.
