So I've been a developer for a relatively short time and I try my best to write as clean and maintainable code as I can following common standards, conventions and applying every technique as I learn it, but the code base and database structure that I'm working with is forcing me to do stuff in a dirty way many times because I don't see another way other than refactoring the whole code base and that bothers me.

    Should be rant tag

    Some pro advice: readability and maintainability is always down to the team. It's about getting out of your own way.

    Many say you have to vibe with the team.

    I say you can talk things out as a professional.

    But in reality it’s always a mix of both, never actually reaching an point of acceptance, regardless the team effort and knowledge of each individual.
