Just stumbled upon an old comment of mine at an ex colleague’s site: Remi’s Calling The Kettle Black.
Almost 10 years later of placing that comment, I feel the worthiest advice is in the ending sentence:
Consistency is a virtue.
It really doesn’t matter if you code1 one way or the other.
Use whatever works best for you and your team to achieve the goal(s). Just remember that consistency sets apart a workable solution from an even better solution. In case of doubt be consistent. If you want to be part of the solution, not the problem ;)
- 1 Should apply to any/most human behaviors; not just coding.
