We can not present that code formatting is unimportant, but must understand why it matters.  A good code format is not the one you think looks the prettiest.  We do not do not layout code in order to exercise our deep artistic leanings.  Good code is clear.  It is consistent.  The layout is almost invisible.  Good presentation does not draw attention or distract; it serves only to reveal the code’s intent.  This helps programmers work with the code effectively.  It reduces the effort required to maintain the code.
