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.

Going back to Kate's message that started this branch[^], we were talking about C#.

Since 2013, all C# design discussions have been public on GitHub:
GitHub - dotnet/csharplang: The official repo for the design of the C# programming language[^]

Earlier discussions were not made public, but some information was available on various MSDN blogs.

The language was originally designed by a team lead by Anders Hejlsberg.

As for C/C++, the details of those decisions are likely lost in the murky depths of the dim and distant past of 1972, unless Dennis Ritchie kept some notes somewhere. Smile | :)
