Discussion on: What are your worst coding habits?

Sometimes I struggle and go for the longer route instead of just focusing on the quick fix.

I often set a breakpoint and learn how code works from there instead of just looking at the documentation.

A part of me wants to fix everything but I've become much more pragmatic over time 😂

I try to do the right thing first.

Often I fail because of missing information, then I do a bunch of quick fixes second.

Then after the fixes built up too much, I do a rewrite as it should be and everything is good.

The second part often happens because I only find the missing information after I tried enough fixes.

Dumb problem and probably unsolvable 😒
