AleCx0426735308dha! WIN. Fuck em dude. They already lost at their own stupid game.
Ranchonyx8037308dDoes formatting really show the capability of a dev?
It's doesn't fucking have to look good, the client won't ever see it.
Making the code look good should be optional.
@Ranchu I'd rather have good looking code with some bugs than a fucking abomination which runs bug free.
Code formatting (independent of indentation char) matters because you or someone else will have to maintain it and not having it somewhat clean is like slowly smearing a warm turd into the eyes of the next dev.
molaram3744308dI agree you can't just have your code looking like a chinese salad of bat intestines with strawberry flavored worms. This was actually about 2 space vs 4 space indentation.
I always use 4 spaces because I may chain across several lines so they're not too long yet still very readable. I cannot be convinced to switch to 2 spaces. So I shown the fucker 4 SQL injection vulns in a single controller they had and told them they'd better worry about security rather than code formatting... naturally, I shouldn't have had such audacity!
