Being verbose is hard when you know that doing so is not the fastest way to code. Knowing in advance that you'll take twice as long is a really good way to never get started at all.


Hi, thx for your comment.

I disagree with you, this only should applies in programming contests where you have 3 hours to solve puzzles.

In my case and experience, beign verbose never going to take twice the time. In fact, you’ll need to review the code again, so, do you prefer spending time trying to understand your code because you used variables as: i, j, k, a, ? And if you are working with a team, imagine how painful could be. Of course this is not just easy, it requires practice but this is part of having good practices. Who doesn’t want to improve ?
