Comments are More Important than Code

codexus Why not How (1021 comments)

Good comments are not there to document what is obvious from reading the code they must add another information that one will not easily get otherwise.

For example, instead of a comment that explains *how* something works write comments when it's necessary to explain *why* you implemented things that way.
