|I do a lot of coding for work (Quant Analysis) mostly in Matlab, but also VBA, and occasionally python. My team has come to write something like 15k lines of code for our overnight process.|
How do you learn to structure a large program? We basically have one Matlab file that calls tons of other routines in different files in a straight order. All are in the same folder. The whole thing is out of hand. We also do not have any form of source control or testing. Wen things break, we fix them on the fly.
Do you have a good book recommendation on project structuring?
