Working on a group project, and this is how my group member writes his "if" statements.

Should I change my group?

    Kill him with fire before he lays eggs! What kind of blasphemy is this? It took me a while to find where the } was hahaha.

    Seriously though, you as a group should agree in some code conventions so that all the code looks the same. Here is what Oracle has to say about if statements, if you need a powerful reason to change his mind: http://oracle.com/technetwork/java/...

    Don't most IDEs have some feature that makes syntax/spacing consistent? It's what I do (first thing) when working with a group; convert all their code to my preferred format.

    @Seag the merge conflicts are going to be nasty if others are still working on features

    @Joserc87 I had the same issue trying to debug his code... You know we know if the scope you're in ended or not 😡

    @burmesepornstar I found a way to merge conflicts with his code... just delete everything he's written, then rewrite everything, git add, git commit 😎

    @Seag this guy uses vim, and compiles in terminal. That's actually the professor's fault, he doesn't believe in IDE's.

    Well good luck when somebody "git blame"s you for some bug in the code ;)
    There are formatters online. Force your colleague to use one.

    The group is just you 2?

    @Joserc87 it's 3 of us, but I'm yet to see the 3rd member of the group.

    I guess I gatta be thankful this guy even does anything 😂

    @arturgrigio I can understand vim + terminal, though that should underscore the importance for consistency and following some kinda standard. Makes my OCD tingle.
