And as I continue to code away, a comment from a visiting Iron Yard alum has stayed with me: he was griping about the lack of context left behind in legacy code. "Be thoughtful about how you code, if for no other reason than for future developers," he said. "You may not know them, but they will know you." As new developers, it can be tempting to glaze over the best practices we're learning in an effort to get to the result faster. But this got me thinking: What are the good coding habits that we should be forming now, and why do they matter?
