@Warren Lockhart This is a great post, please let me you help you untangle the deeper meaning of it.

You see, you've clearly stated the heart of the problem even if you don't seem to understand the deeper implications of it:
"One of these guys once openly admitted to me that they write overly convoluted and opaque code so that they can't be fired."

Who does the firing? Obviously this is a person who admits that he simply obeys the rules of the organization first and foremost, and doesn't even attempt to follow any moral guidelines or job obligations. In today's world, this is the prime differentiation between all people in professional environments, and the ones who are right are usually the ones being dismissed. This is exactly why this or any similar company doesn't have any good developers, and won't have any. As you said:

"Good developers create the simplest possible solution to a complex problem."
So why aren't the good developers employed? We know that any capitalist company wants the simplest possible solution, and we know that it's not true that good developers don't exist. So what seems to be the issue?
As you said

"I've met very few truly good developers"
Met them where? Likely you meant 'in a professional environment'.

Let me break it to you:
It is the management (and seniors) of that company who consciously drafts bad developers. Not necessarily because they're bad, that's more like a side-effect, but because they're similar to them. It's because they're not afraid of similar people, all they want is to cultivate a specific culture in which they all pretend to be responsible at their job, while secretly developing a position of power, irreplaceability, and selfishly further their career and financial securities. They don't want a whistleblower, someone who would enter, observe a lack of discipline, knowledge, scrupules, someone who'd solve problems quickly and in a more friendly and accessible manner. It is very hard to match that standard, but that guy/girl is all alone, so let's gang up on him/her, let's make him/her produce a capital error and show that to the top management, how anything fast and clear isn't always better. It's 'better' to be socially apt and professionally shrewd than doing one's job right and making world a better place. Right? There's a firm belief among people that "a better world isn't profitable".

What's truly between the lines is this:
"World will never be a better place. I do not belong to a better place. I will make sure it stays the same grey mess of deep dualities in which being 'better' slash 'more successful' doesn't equate to being smarter, more friendly, or having better morals. The world is a needlessly cruel place and I got used to it, because I have learned to bluff my way in this cauldron of social injustice, all kinds of inequalities and disparate financial opportunities. Fuck the world, it's my life and life of my children that matters."

Now sit back and try to discern on which side you would like to be, because it's pretty much the standard Matrix dilemma.
If you're still positive you're the good guy, it's us who need to change the world. The world is shitty for a (deeply social and unspoken) reason and won't simply change by itself because the positions of power have been domino-infested by troubled individuals.

Look up for the term Bozo Horizon, if I haven't mentioned this already. It's an effect that has been observed almost 10 years ago and is valid for every critically big technology company, and imo it is valid for most other endeavors and organizations, including politics and law, but sadly there are no normal people left to observe this regularly. Bozo Horizon is a wordplay alluding to an Event Horizon, a point of no return, basically, whilst approaching a physical black hole, which is a terrifying analogy to where the humanity is heading. It explains how energetic pioneers reach the top, earn a fortune, only to discover themselves being part of an environment which systematically burns them out until it replaces their 'success-bearing' values with people who silently bring in injustice, corruption, politicking, decadence, ousting anything that has built the success of the company in the first place, until the company's vision is ultimately changed to a much darker tone; but because it sits on huge piles on money this isn't readily apparent and takes quite a while to manifest to the outside world.

That code would not pass codereview in any company I can tell you that now for several reasons:
- using let for variables he has intention of redefining
- arrow function abuse
- recursive call
- curry hell
- doesn't follow standard camelCase naming
- terrible variable names

A proper solution would use a lookup table and a single modulo operator before entering the loop.

Protip for beginners: If your supervisor has created this legacy code and you make it into something good, prepare for passive aggressive backlash.

Mason DeRoss

Learn how to frame things in a way that benefits everyone; "since we have time to go back and review stable code this week, we can use some new language features to refactor." You didn't do anything. We did it. We created the code base, we always existed, we now includes you, but we isn't I. When using the word I, you should be asking a question: "Nothing happening this week; should I refactor code to improve consistent readability to the new standards, PAB?" We accomplish things, I ask questions. This is assuming you don't care about credit and advertising what you accomplish. If you want personal credit for things, then expect the negative consequences that come with vanity and fame; jealousy, envy, a target to place frustrations upon, et cetera. You can write papers if you want credit for things; don't flaunt it in the office, even unintentionally by talking about things in the possessive framing of "I wrote, I did, I changed, ...". It shouldn't matter to people, but it does, and you can only change your own behavior with any certainty; it would require intense effort and potential failure if you want to change the behavior of others, starting with just making them aware of the idea that everyone has feelings we don't notice or acknowledge even to ourselves, that over time cause us to think certain ways about other people, and then we have a world view where we are unfairly critical of people out of spite if we are not careful. You don't do that, and I don't do that, but we do that sometimes; I was intentional in the point of view shift.

I will put it another way: when you frame things poorly, you're writing the English equivalent of that old garbage legacy code and everyone else is cringing the way you cringed over the code before you re-wrote it. What's wrong with grouping all the declarations at the top (using I framing)? Technically nothing, but it sets a bad tone for the rest of the code/message. The compiler should optimize in a lot of cases, but initialization and assignment in C++ are not the same and one is definitely better than the other.

So, I refactored this legacy pro--tip here (and don't care about backlash ;). It's a much longer tip now, because of over engineering. Someone else can optimize it to a shorter tip, but the precision added that was missing from the original tip has to be maintained for it to be a good refactor. That's not my problem though, I finished my refactor to get rid of the sprintf and malloc calls and tests are all green.

If these examples are real, this is surprisingly bad code.

Yo

My lead developer refused to let me code on his legacy code even though it was my job, he also refused to explain any code to me. It's not just about hurting egos it's also about knowledge guarding... some people think if others understand their code, they will become expendable.

bryphi77

yep... it goes for every industry... slaves will be slaves.

Тимур Курскиев

@MyName Here I have to mention, that the situation I described in my comment here changed some time later (may be couple months). There was a point in time, when I decided to leave that job for some reasons, including lead's attitude. And I layed down all the things I'm uncomfortable with to my employer. He asked me not to hurry with the decision, and said that he'll take some measures. So, the situation really changed, and attitude from that lead guy too.
A bit later we even become a good friends.
Nowadays I don't work there, in the new place already, but I keep in touch with ex lead :)

@Epic Gamer im such a bad programmer that I'm struggling to find my original comment you replied to.

I appreciate the advice, lol. What garbage was I considering?

Disregard: found it.

I respect python, but it's not my bag. Lol

Epic Gamer

@Nicholas Carson don't its garbage

@0lfan
It really becomes a problem when you have some shit where it's all on one line, or sometimes when it's nested deeply enough that the editor defaults to inserting code near the end of the terminal. Also, macros in a block of code tend to ruin formatting, but there's not really a good way to fix that.
