  1. oh shit… im doing my apprenticeship rn, 3rd year and i talk out loud while coding… but it's a lot of swearing and gibberish of half-sentences that makes sense to me and me only

  2. Completely disagree regarding switch vs if. If there's ever a potential for more than 2 outcomes (eg: if you'd need to use an else if), use a switch. Depending on the language, the compiler typically uses an if/else or a lookup table/hash list under the hood, depending on the number of conditions. The more the conditions, the larger the difference in performance.
