don't just give your opinion, it's useless without a reason why.

and no matter how awful your solution is, there's somebody out there who's going to be a fanboy and scream how great it is (and probably more loudly than all the people who know better combined).

comment How to make a large codebase easier to understand for new programmers
@RobertHarvey of course, you should have the initial business requirements laid out and a rough architecture. But the way DW describes it it reads like he wants an old fashioned architecture document laying out everything down to method and variable names.

that's nice to understand what a specific source file does, but it doesn't tell you anything about how all the different source files fit and work together. It's also imperative that it gets properly maintained, changed with the source file. And in my experience THAT is where such comments fall, they tend to not be properly maintained because there's "no time for it", things get changed rapidly to meet changing requirements or bugfixes that need to go out NOW and all that happens is a note somewhere "TODO update documentation" which then never gets done.

ah, the old waterfall method of writing a single, all encompassing, immutable, Truth before coding even starts and make it impossible to deviate in the implementation from said Truth.

comment How to promote code review as an employee?
@user1273587 if you don't have a baseline to which to review, each review session will become a "I prefer it like this", "but I like this better" fight between hotheaded people, each with their own set in stone preferences. Say you like CamelCase, the other guy likes to_use_undescores, or even lpfsHungariannotation...

comment Is there any situation when there's no alternative to instanceof?
instanceof should not be avoided, it should rather be used wisely, iow only where appropriate. Just like everything else.

@user1273587 if they produce decent code and the code guidelines/standards are well described, reasonable, and followed, there's very little rework that's not because of technical or functional problems with the code, iow bugs that would now be caught only in testing (hopefully) or production.
