I often find myself still writing the following statement all over my code:
// TODO: (the work that needs done)
I do this in order to flag that I need to come back and do something later on. It often happens when the functionality of the code is dictated by other code that will be written later on. I did a quick Google search and took the first two results about this...
The first result I found explains that this is a valid way of doing things, and is the first result that shows up in Google:
Then, another result I found suggested something about that a Task List could be used as an alternative...
The problem I have with both of these is that they are both 7+ years old, and I am exploring what has changed between now and then.
Is writing TODO, still a valid way of doing things?
