A few days ago I posted about mitigating complex code issues and introduced my opinion that commenting should be viewed as a last resort. That post kicked up some discussion on Facebook with some of my friends: “Documentation and commenting is still important” -Close friend from college “I think it can be important, but I would much rather see time invested in writing better code and hiring more talented developers.”

Lately I’ve been thinking about my current general philosophy on how to approach the code I work on each day… When I’ve solved a hard problem (or have a design for a solution in mind), I ask myself the following questions: 1) Would a slightly more junior developer understand the code I just wrote?            …See the genius behind the design I just implemented?                 …Understand why I wrote it the way I did?
