Game of Code

Or “write code like you immediately forget what you wrote” so it’s not a guessing game to figure out why you wrote what you wrote way back when.

What do I mean by that ?

Write code CLEARLY. Use constants liberally and give them good meaningful names.

So instead of writing a line like

If asc(key) = 16 or asc(key) = 204 then

where 16 and 204 are not obvious to everyone maybe write this as

Const ctrlP = 16
Const F5 = 204

if asc(key) = ctrlP  or asc(key) = F5 then

And then even when you go back and look at this code in 6 months even you won’t have to guess what 16 and 204 mean.
