Formatting code for readability 3

Posted by Doug Hull,

The use of whitespace can make your code more pleasant to read. This is not just a nicety, it actually makes it easier to see the structure of your code and makes it more clear where code breaks the established patterns to help find bugs (like copy and paste bugs). Though not presented in this video, Scott pointed out that comments and cell dividers are also excellent ways to format code.

I have used whitespace in this way for a long time, and I teach rookie developers to do the same. Another advantage to coding in this way is that when portions of code that are logically parallel are written in a visually parallel way, it helps avoid simple typos and other bugginess.
