Tips

My personal tips and notes I collected for myself along my journey of being better developer

Don’t not not

Don’t not not

Please (PLEASE!) don’t use the following patterns for naming your variables or functions:

let not_logged_in or func is_not_admin() or $isNotAvailiable.

That’s because when one reads your code he/she has to interpret the login when there is a condition on the negative of those variables/function.

For example:
[code]
if not not_logged_in {
/* if im not not logged in, then i am logged in */
}
….
$service = !$isNotAvailiable ? $a.service : null; // mind blown

etc.
[/code]

Instead you can just remove the NOT word from naming, that’s much more readable and fluent.
