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.

A guy that worked here for 7 months left for us a mvc application that only has 1 view model for 17 views.
Where do you think he put all the data? yes, on that view model.
That thing has properties that differ only by casing, only by swapping 'c' with 'ç', only by using accentuation (like 'Região' and 'Regiao') and by all of that('regiao', 'região', 'Regiao', 'Região').
All of those properties have a different meaning.
You're lucky that you only need to deal with low/upper case differences.
I'm brazilian and english (well, human languages in general) aren't my best skill, so, sorry by my english. (if you want we can speak in C# or VB.Net =p)
