My first job and the amount of bad code I had to work with influenced my coding style a lot.
One thing is reading about bad examples. Another thing is it to maintain these bad examples.

    I hope by "maintain" you also mean "improve". 😄

    @PonySlaystation @C0D4 a bit of both. The problem was that everything had side effects on everything else. So it wasn't possible to change just one small part. Every refactoring was very big and had too many side effects. Fortunately, I don't have to work with this codebase anymore.
