That's exactly what I have been pondering! Smile | :)

Probably in time I can show them with evidence that if you write clean enough code, comments become more or less useless.

I guess a lot of it comes from their past experience working with the current version of the product which is written in classic ASP (not even Web Forms) and its been written so badly that comments became a necessity and a bit of license to continue writing sloppy code. They have hired me to help not only rearchitect the product to bring it into 21st century but also establish other practices like TDD, Scrum, CI/CD etc which they haven't really done in the past so its my job to shine a light on what needs to be done but they still seem to carry the paranoia from the past which is making them edgy about me not putting any comments in the code.

Perhaps I should stop pushing so hard initially and observe! Thanks! Smile | :) What do you think about code comments though?
