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.

I have a few close friends that work for Microsoft, and they are developers there.

I am not saying this is the reason, but it may be a contributing factor: too many young people with subpar work ethic. I've preached about this in other threads over the years, but my friends brought this up to me before, a few times. I guess its becoming a big deal/issue there.

It would explain or partially explain the increased lackluster rollouts and releases, the bugs that should have been caught during normal testing processes, etc. - the silly, stupid stuff that should never occur.

Hey, go woke, go broke. You get what you pay for. If Microsoft wants to pay for shite, then they get shite. Just saying...
