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, embarrasing 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 understand what you're getting at. I've also come across libraries that haven't quite done what I was after. In that case you're completely correct.
 
Obviously I'll evaluate a library first. It's not as if I download the first thing I find and plump for that like it's cool. It also has to have good documentation and positive peer reviews because without them you're on your own, with someone else's code.
 
You can't guarantee that it will be any easier picking up someone's homebrewed alternative. You'd still have to learn that and it might not have the same documentation or review coverage as the third party component. This is where I find independent peer reviews are worth their weight in gold.
 
At any rate, I've still got 39 of the 40 estimated hours left for ironing out my wrinkles.
