Discussion on: Neither You nor Your Work Has to be Perfect

I agree with everything you said, we all have this idea of how 'this time it will be perfect and clean' and then the bugs and the patching start.

One thing I try to do is keep comments in the code in areas that I suspect someone will have to return to one day and to keep commit messages as useful as possible when patching.

I guess that saying is true, the perfect code and the perfect app is one you don't write a line of code for.

Yes! Let's get more people to write meaningful commit messages. Re: code comments, those dudes should be using sparingly in my opinion. Sometimes code is pretty crazy, so I get using comments in instances like that.
