When you tell starters that comments are lies meme

meme; Socrates death scene; When you tell starters that comments are lies

Comments are bad.

Why are they bad?

Comments are bad because you can’t trust them.

There are only two things you can trust in programming:

Code and tests, which is code but different.

The best way to transmit to the reader of your code what your code does is through the code itself.

This meme is part of the “Comments” episode from the Clean Code course.
