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.

I did a demo on this about 1-1/2 years ago, as my fellow developers didn’t see the harm, either. They did afterwards.

Since in a well designed app, the try-catch-finally is mostly copy and paste, it really does not save any meaningful development time to use the using statement.

Exception handling is a key to reducing dev and QA testing, as well as production troubleshooting. By utilizing the exception’s Data collection, the developer can capture runtime values that are very helpful in diagnosing problems in execution. I have, on many occasions, seen production troubleshooting that would have taken a day or more, shortened to minutes, by smart exception handling. In many production systems, that difference in time can mean thousands to millions in revenue losses avoided by significantly quicker resolution.

Using us a shortcut that alleviates the burden of a developer having to remember to call Dispose(). I’d rather use developers who don’t need such shortcuts.
