Writing a great report

Professor Simon Peyton Jones is a very inspiring and interesting speaker and in this presentation he makes seven suggestions for writing a research report:

  • don’t wait – write,
  • identify your key idea,
  • tell a story,
  • nail your contributions,
  • put related work at the end,
  • put your readers first,
  • listen to your readers.

He makes some really important points here, particularly in relation to putting your readers first and listening to your readers.
