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.

Oh, I didn't mean to be serious.
I mostly thought it was an interesting error, because I had built and deployed the (minor) ASP.NET MVC 5 content on previous days and it worked fine.

Next, I went back and built it again and that odd Roslyn compiler thing creeped into my web.config and I didn't know why or how but it made the site crash like that.

Yes, proper work methodology is always important for deploying real code. Agree 100%
