Generic question

Hi I was wondering if it really matters how I write out the code? My code is written slightly different to the video but it works.

Is there such thing as bad form/practice? Or is it a case of..If it works it works?

P.s First comment so not sure how to copy and paste my code

Thanks Paul

Hi Paul!

If you look just beneath the field where you write the post/answer there's a text called "Markdown Cheatsheet", click there to see some guidelines on how to post code etc :)

Regarding your main question, it depends. Sometimes it can have unwanted effects if you place your code in a "bad" way. even if it seems to work at the moment. Generally though, you're good to go as long as it works and you follow the practice that someone else should be able to read your code and be able to understand what it does. You will learn this as you go.

I hope that helps, happy coding!


Thanks for your quick reply Jonas
