I’ve been reading a lot of LeetCode problem discussion threads this year, and a consistent trend is that that people upvote short solutions. The solution authors aren’t counting each character like they do over on Code Golf Stack Exchange. But they do try to minimize the number of lines, and even advertise their program length in the post title. Is that a bad thing?
Why do programmers pride themselves for writing short, hard-to-read code, especially solutions on LeetCode? (answer)
