Programming has evolved from listing mechanical instructions for a computer to writing gigantic works in evolved languages that sometimes remind their natural counterparts. However, more often than not we forget this connection and look at other fields like Mathematics in the search for models to improve the art of Programming. Alfonso proposes we turn our eyes on to natural languages again to take inspiration from techniques used by humans to centuries ago to better articulate our programs, improve the semantics in our code, and communicate much more efficiently in a team.
