me: *submits a PR on our old system*
My teamlead: please mind the code style, there was no need to add the extra whitespace line under that loop.
Me: 🤔 there are style conventions in this project??
NB: this is really old code with tons of long lines, weird spacing and whitespace in random places and functions that span hundreds of lines.
I seriously did not notice a consistent style here.
I wanna go back to working on the new system ☹️

    I once had a job where my code reviews had to go thru a certain "engineer". His only complaint was extra white space. I even threw in obvious code smells and errors to see what he could catch.

    I always suspected he was a poser and couldn't write code to save his ass...

    White space is a great separator

    Doesn‘t any decent dev environment have CI/CD Pipeline set up, which usually includes a linter? So who gives a damn about code style?

    @gathurian the new system: yes thru have pipelines. The old one: no. We're busy getting rid of it gradually, but it's a huge codebase
