Our professor takes points off our code if we use tabs (not much, but still).
But the best part is having "few" spaces is also a problem. Seems like using tabs we be a solution then.

    Try not using line breaks as well.

    Nest ternary statements with streams and lambdas and use method references, generics, and regular expressions whenever possible to increase code readability.

    If it was her that read our code, she just sets the rules. Just pure evil.

    I still use tabs though.

    I guess the main lesson learned is how to work in a team that handles a specific code convention. No matter how good a programmer you are, working with other programmers on the same project is also a skill.

    @teganburns @kanduvisla I set it to 4 spaces. It's still annoying though, particularly when these things are not expressly told beforehand.

    Try editing yaml files for saltstack with tabs! Error messages are everywhere.

    YAML is space sensitive so nowadays I use spaces everywhere instead of tabs

    Forget tabs vs. spaces, just use semicolons.
