Software Engineer by day. Writer by night. Keyboard for Hire.

As my tag line states, I'm a software engineer. I've been programming my way in to and out of problems since high school. I got my degree in computer science (University of West Florida, Pensacola, FL) and I enjoy the challenges and critical thinking required to come up with complex solutions. I also love writing. I have had a dream since I was very young to be an author of a book or book series and I try to make that happen whenever I can.

comment What can be done when you are the only person to care about consistency?
JeffO, my manager appears to be of a similar opinion, he was a dev at some point, but is no longer. Because the functionality is what he needs to sell the software, anything that hinders it coming out faster is an obstacle.

Marcel: I don't think the opinion is that the refactoring is "hard" but that the ultimate goal of refactoring, making things structured in such a way that the code is more readable / easier to work with but changes none of the functionality appears to be the crux of the issue.

A style guide would require everyone to agree on a styling. Another thing that my team-mates feel is a waste of time.

Consistency in my mind means following an agreed upon styling / syntax / format / etc. so that the code -looks- the same. So that if someone runs into a situation of needing to do X, and someone has done Y which is like X but with a slight difference, X and Y would be similar in the previously mentioned criteria. Our code base currently has a wide variety of variants when it comes to style, commenting, formatting, spacing, placement of braces, length of functions. The arguments against cleaning up code for consistency is speed. Getting the code out the door ASAP.
