Code Cleanup

The great thing about coding is our ability to create something. To build a website, application, or script is something we love to do because we have ownership of it. Like building a house from the foundation up, building something with code gives us a sense of pride, joy, and oxytocin release that’s unlike any feeling in the world.

But every now and then, we end up working on a project that was built too quickly, built by someone who didn’t know what they were doing, or just been handed off to so many different developers that, by the time it’s in our hands, it’s become a behemoth reminiscent of John Carpenter’s The Thing.

Whether you’re hand-coding your website or working with a code/WYSIWYG editor, you must always make a practice of checking the hierarchical order, syntax, and spelling of your HTML, CSS, JavaScript, jQuery, and other programming code. Even when you use the best programs available, at some point your code could include errors because you are human.
