Actually that C++ developer was correct in his belief in clean code explaining itself. However, "clean code" is only truly clean when a less experienced person can easily understand it.

If you are a competent developer and found difficulties with understanding this person's code, than it is that developer who did not understand that his code was not as "clean" as he believed. Obviously, it was clean to him because he could easily understand it but he didn't take into account that someone else may not.

Truly clean code means that the code is written with the most basic syntax available that will process the task efficiently. However, many developers believe their code is clean today simply because they wrote it in a legible manner while still using a lot of syntax sugar that vendors come up with in their compilers to make things simpler.

Surprise, surprise! The result is exactly what you are complaining about... And with good reason...
