Clever code is almost always harder to understand.


And yet most juniors or atleast I did, started out like Ash Cetchem, wanted to be a Pokémon, I mean developer master and be the best there ever was. How nieve I was. 🤣

Trying to prove your worth by doing something difficult to understand is an inevitable stage of most developers. It isn't until you tey to figure out somebody else's clever code that you realize that maintainability is so important.
