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.

Please don't let it spread around, but I really like JavaScript too.
I like it because it is proliferate --- browsers are everywhere -- you can write code anywhere!
I just wish it had some more and better tools for debugging and compiler warnings so development with it could be more structured and systematic. But sometimes I just really like it because it is so wild and zany too. It's so dynamic you can do crazy cool things with it.
Also, the Canvas (drawing / gaming) stuff that you can do is amazing and quite easy to learn.
Check out my robotDots article (HTML5 Canvas : Clean JavaScript & Code Organization Allows Faster Dev, Easier Extensibility[^]) or my console in a web page article (Command Console in your browser via HTML5 Canvas & JavaScript[^]) here at CP.

Of course you are a real dev. Thumbs Up | :thumbsup:
