re: Clean code... Why bother? VIEW POST


The only legitimate reason on that list IMO is #6. No one is going to thank you for clean code. Eventually, you will be out of the picture and someone is going to rush around to add a feature and the code base will get messy, they will start naming things however they want to. So do it because it feels good and you know it's right :)


For me, the #6 summarizes all the others in a way. I do it because it feels great to take advantage of all these other things.
I do code reviews and PR reviews regularly and I do feel thankful every time I have to review clean code 😂
Altough, your comment made me think that I should actually say "thank you" to the dev more often.
