KISS, DRY, Path of Least Resistance, Three Strikes and You Refactor, early returns, no array.map when nothing is returned, only use switch when # cases >= 3.

And using var in javascript instead of let/const to piss off my colleagues (and because I understand function scope well)

    Var?! I'm beyond pissed off, I'm disappointed.

    Luckily our team enforces airbnb styling with pipeline checks

    Never heard of the Three Strikes rule, but it's not bad. I'm not a huge fan of dogmatic practices personally, but it's a decent rule nonetheless.

    @junon like everything else in life, I feel like these are guidelines rather than rules. I personally have had to force myself to violate DRY for readability, testability, and debugging.

    I used to think I understood function scope. Then I started doing javascript. Although sometimes I wonder if I do understand it and this project just sucks.

    @alexbrooklyn With all the shitty hires my company has, my code base would be a pile of toxic waste if I didn't have pipelines enforcing this shit.
