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.

This man, Mr. Arnab Chakraborty has taught me so much about parsing. His videos are incredible. They're basically class lectures on advanced CS topics, like this one on viable prefix computation in shift reduce parsing.

Viable Prefixes and Valid Items - YouTube[^]

It appears he's not a doctor - not that it matters, but it's just startling to me given the variety of advanced subjects I've found him lecture on. I'd think he'd make a great CS professor anywhere.

I'm not really here to plug his site, but he's such a valuable resource at the same time i don't want anyone to miss out. I usually google with "tutorialspoint [topic]" if i want to find him in particular.

I don't even usually like videos to teach things, but in some cases seeing him whiteboard it is very helpful.
Real programmers use butterflies
