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.

Don't go by the name,you could get very good people from companies whose names are un-heard of,or the other category from companies that are "Top".My suggestion if the next time you are offshoring some work do not go by the company name but have a good interaction with the team that is working on the specs and if they are not upto the mark as a customer I think you have the privilege of getting a new team(not sure though) and do not settle for something less.every $ is valuable.
