- Uses of Pseudo Code in Development - my sweet point in coding is when I have to write a tricky routine, and need to resort to pseudo code to nut out the details. The challenge is made easier by the simple technique of pseudo code, a dry run of coding if you will without the constraint of whatever language you're using. It still surprises me I don't see more coders (read: any) using this technique. Nick Halstead gives a good summary and pointers on this .
