The first code sample adheres to PEP-8 guidelines, which include using spaces around operators and after commas, and proper indentation for readability.

The second code sample violates several PEP-8 recommendations, such as lacking spaces around operators and after commas, and improper indentation. This can lead to less readable and maintainable code.
