“When asked, I would give people my opinion that maintainable code is more important than clever code,” he said. “If I encountered clever code that was particularly cryptic, and I had to do some maintenance on it, I would probably rewrite it. So I led by example, and also by talking to other people.”

The javascript community fought hard for the fat arrow syntax, () => {}.

It’s shorter for sure. But way more annoying to type on a regular basis than function() {}.

And that is the folly of programmer culture IMO. Constantly optimizing the wrong things for the wrong reasons.

Terseness tension | Christian Heilmann
“The biggest flaw in the shorter is better thinking to me is that it assumes an outdated idea of development. We’ve come a long way in delivering code to our end users. Instead of writing live code there are a lot of sensible steps we can take. Linting the code for issues even before we add it to version control. Writing tests and validating the code against erroneous input. And converting and packing the code to be smaller in production than it is in development. Tools are great at shortening code to be more effective and even parsers and engines do their bit. JavaScript engines do a lot of optmising and caching of code. Thus a seemingly long piece of code can run faster than something that has been optimised prematurely.”

Beware of Selector Nesting in Sass
If you ask me now, I feel like adding pseudo-classes and pseudo-elements are pretty much the only case where it’s fine.
