Not all programmers in the same space are equal.
There are some people who write superior code.
And some who write garbage.
And some in between.
I imagine we learn snippets of code, techniques, etc. that we keep in our tool belts.
And some we use more than others.
I've seen some amazing code in my day.
Stuff that I scratch my head and wonder what the heck is this code doing, just amazing!
And other code I wish I never looked at.
My code is in between, somewhat standard code throughout, some good stuff but nothing fancy.
Keep it simple stupid.
So the maintenance person behind me doesn't cuss me out!
