Discussion on: Don't be unique

You just reminded me of the one time I mentioned having coding standards here at my job and received a "ARE YOU CRAZY??" response.

They kinda felt I was proposing limiting their artistic coding style or something hahahaha

I always chuckle when they say a certain code block is a mess. It wouldn't be if we had decided to adopt a style, standard or decided to follow good practices. Sadly, there's a huge monster we programmers (and probably everybody not just us) have to deal with and it's called THE EGO. :c

Sad, but very true. Usually people's feeling getting hurt when we enter the discussion about coding style. That's why I love to have some automatic check in the CI. It's little bit better if the robot blames you and not someone else. :)
