Hi Jon Trelfa, thanks for your input.
I think there’s a shift of coding review is meant to catch syntax issue or bugs due to connecting to the wrong variable is getting lesser these days. The tools have evolved to reduce such mistakes both while coding or during the CI process. The coding review will focus more on the algorithmic, architecture instead.
I believe Github will also continue to improve its readability to make some of such distinction in the future, just like most text editor code now add syntax coloring to its tool.
The intent is not to create a less readable code, but to avoid stating the obvious if the tooling does help eventually. We might not be fully there yet, but I think that’s the direction the overall coding world is evolving towards.
