You and Your Research - Richard Hamming

Another paper that I read on my Sydney to London flight was one titled ‘You and Your Research’ by Richard Hamming.

It’s a transcript of a talk that Richard Hamming gave to Bellcore employees at the Morris Research and Engineering Centre in 1986.

The talk is aimed at computer science researchers and Hamming describes ways for them to do the best research that they can. I think several of the ideas in the talk relate to software development as well.

There’s certainly other interesting ideas in this paper but those were some of the bits that stood out for me. Worth reading.
