Structure: decades of programming in too many languages to enumerate. I lean functional, but only when the language doesn't fight it. No matter what I'm doing, my code is immutable in practice, if not paradigm.

Syntax: No one thing in particular. I code differently depending on the language.

When I start learning a language, I'll find the standard style checker and create a project where I write an example of every single rule.

The end result is generally a quick intro to the language and a bonus understanding of the hot sports opinion in said language. I call this an ocean boiler.

I lean heavily into autoformatting because I've worked on too many projects to care, and I have a general expectation that something which is important enough to make a code standard is important enough to be enforced in tooling. I'd rather spend my time solving problems that thinking about stylistics.

    What would the world be like without autoformat and other tooling... I wouldn't want to know. 😇

    It was pretty manual, you relied on the compiler and didn't care quite as much about person to person styles. You generally got more time to do your work too.

    @SortOfTested Yes, but I meant it more like: Imagine if all code had to be written without autoformat, IntelliSense etc.... I'd think of random plane crashes, office fires, crashing car... 😄

    I lived that before time 😋 it was definitely more primitive. People tended to be better engineers though.

    I love the immutable stuff! Too few programmers care about that.
