Not everybody
Ah, but I don't have to write my production code for everybody. At best, only a hundred or so eyes will see my production code before it's obsolete or rewritten.

    Well, I would consider myself lucky if I could afford writing production code knowing that only people smarter than me will ever see it. Not there yet, if ever.


      I work with people who can do at least one of the following:
      • Have seen the idiom before. (If you think I invented the line we're talking about, you're mistaken).
      • Understand the code we're talking about.
      • Read the manual pages.
      • Run git blame and ask.
      I'm sorry you have to work with people who lack all of those skills.
