You’ve heard it before, that future-you is also a different person. While that’s true, it doesn’t have the emotional weight of an actual different person working on your code.
So the lesson I’ve learned is this: that other person is out there, and there’s a good chance I already know him or her. I want that person to be happy when they go to work on my code. I want them to not curse my name and the horse I rode in on.
Looks like Brent is doing a good job of this.
