The Weird and The Wonderful

   

The Weird and The Wonderful forum is a place to post Coding Horrors, Worst Practices, and the occasional flash of brilliance.

We all come across code that simply boggles the mind. Lazy kludges, embarrassing mistakes, horrid workarounds and developers just not quite getting it. And then somedays we come across - or write - the truly sublime.

Post your Best, your worst, and your most interesting. But please - no programming questions . This forum is purely for amusement and discussions on code snippets. All actual programming questions will be removed.

Lol...good one

Unfortunately, I've come across so many such instances of bad programmers in my career (and I'm sure most of you have as well). This fortunately for me has been the only instance where the developer has understood what they've done wrong and positively taken on board the recommendations I've made.

I actually came across this while doing a code review for a team that I had not worked with before.
