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.

it's called Sales.

worked for a guy that was "12 credits from a Software Engineering degree" is what he'd tell his hires. Didn't know jack about software engineering, but could sell a freezer to an Eskimo. He routinely sold my time & talent by overcommitting me to deadlines and technologies.

I was there 7 months. Smile | :)
