!rant Just an observation. There is a lot of discussion about syntax. Should it be tabs or spaces or should the opening bracket be on the same line as the method/function. There is 101 languages and standards. Syntax varies and you just can't learn it all.

What is more important? Result or the aesthetics? If you come into a project you adapt. You use the syntax everyone else is using. If you are a part of starting a project you agree on rules of engagement and stick to them so the team works at maximum efficiency. If you lead a project you define the rules by adapting to your teams habits. Because in the end it's the working product we are after.

Golden mean.

    I'd rather be working slower on more readable code, so it's way easier to maintain when a bug arrives.

    The user might not notice it, but for the developers it's a godsend. You don't want to be debugging years old code. Write code of python-like cleanliness and adhere to the rules of DRY and SOLID, and you will have an experience of a lifetime (if the rest of your team also follows those rules..)
