I’ve been in a lot of meetings about coding standards. I really don’t care about what indentation style you use, or how many spaces to indent them, or much at all about how your code is formatted. It’s 2014; I can reformat it in Eclipse to look any way I want.
But there are some things I see in code that make me mad. Generally, things that make me mad in code fall into a number of categories:
- Stuff that makes the code hard to read.
- Stuff that makes the code hard to debug.
- Stuff that makes the code less reliable
In this series of posts, I’ll rant a bit about some things that make me grind my teeth when I see them.
