When I worked with companies that have a holy mess of code, I felt like there wasn’t enough time in the day to refactor everything. When things broke when I refactored them I got yelled at. It felt like a miserable existence.
When I worked with a company that had clean code I didn’t have much work to do. It was all just boring things like adding more controllers and views and CRUD tasks. It felt like a miserable existence.
