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 have seen some students while I was in university, they used to do out-source through other companies.

The problem is, those university student has very little idea about security, because they know how to do javascript and html and other programming language, but security is more related with experience. The experience is not only gathered from year of working experience also working with the people who knows about it.

When you outsource your work you give it to some company in some country but you don't look at their setup. You really don't know how much they care about your security.

I am not telling you to do out-source. I am telling you to rethink how you would give your precious system to be developed by some company you barely know.
