I love var but some of what you posted is too much. C# 12 will end up looking like perl at this rate. :/

I'm a fan of yoda conditionals for two reasons:

The first is old habits from back when compilers were more primitive (preventing accidental assignment)

The second is I've found that if you must use a series of ifs on the same target value it is easier to visualize what you're doing when the target is on the left hand side. For example

if("foo"==target)
else if("bar"==target)
else if("baz"==target)


that one obv is simple and can be changed to a switch but once you start adding || and && in there and breaking each subcomparison out on it's own line the difference is clear. yodaized looks better in the source in terms of figuring out what you're doing. The target being on the right makes it less distracting
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
