I see a lot of arguments that “you don’t need comments if your code is self-documenting.” I keep pushing for examples, but I only get toy examples. I’m looking for real world examples, where the code is part of an established, public codebase that is used by people to do things. This is important because then it’s had to obey several different business concerns, so we see how the idea holds up under pressure.
I haven’t been able to find any of these. Do any of you have codebases you’d recommend? Thanks!
