Standards already exist to improve software readability, but code understandable by a colleague differs from the best code to present to a student. As a scientist, I have often had to jump from mathematics or pseudo-code to a fully fledged implementation, with no chance to gain purchase in an intermediate middle ground. In the last year, I have worked on a Julia blog in computational physics and numerics and have striven to write code comprehensible to someone unfamiliar with the fundamental principles of the algorithm. In this talk, I will display both good and bad examples of documentation and tutorials, as well as guidelines for improvement.
