This is one of the reasons I like Rust: because they use the same
consistent code style nearly everywhere and they have a tool (rustfmt) that
automatically thoroughly formats everything in that style. Additionally,
beginners are encouraged to use it. Even if there are some things I would
do differently if I were designing the code style today, having consistency
across all Rust code everywhere is a big enough benefit that I can live
with some things that aren't quite how I like.

I've had to deal with the gazillion different styles of C and C++ languages
and teaching materials that actively try to get beginners to come up with
their own style to their detriment. All it does is makes their code harder
to read.
