I know that when a deadline is present, things like cyclomatic complexity might be something that is a left aside. But I hate so much having to troubleshoot a method with 15 levels deep of nested if, try-catch, loops... Fuck!

    People who excuse their deeply nested unreadable code on tight deadlines have always bothered me.

    I can't even write that sort of code anymore, because I can't keep track of what I'm doing.

    @buried Right!! When I'm reaching the fourth level down the rabbithole, is like a red flag haha

    @marcorodnav obviously it depends on the code base, but you can still apply patterns in your code and write it fast. Sometimes I'd argue it's faster, because it's something you probably have done before and can copy/paste where needed. :)
