I always have a folder called _A in the root of each (fixed) drive on my systems. This means it's always at the top of the directory listing and quicker to find than "stuff". All "temporary" or "uncategorisable" stuff goes in there and every few months I have a cleanout.
I can actually forgive that. This was just for demonstration's sake and does not really do anything else. Why make up fancy names that distract from what you are trying to demonstrate?
I never got this obscession with code styles and conventions. We're writing code, not poetry. I'm used to writing machine code on a RISC processor. It does not get any more abstract than that, but by going down to the lowest level you really can see how little information you need when reading someone else's code. That's mostly about what resources are going to be used, what is being accomplished with them and possibly to point out critical or unusual code and the logic behind it. There actually is no need to make an art out of it.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.
His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.

The audience appreciation is the comfort with which they use it and the other artist who can create, because of it's natural beauty, interfaces and outputs with ease. The applause - in a special way - include the silence resulting from everything working as expected.
And the audience appreciation probably extends to the bi-weekly paying customer.
The site is, for now, internal, only - so you'd need to work here.
Surely, by now, you've seen sh*t masquerading as software. They have some here, too, built by their contractors.
My target is a comfortable flowing experience for the developer through users - and also keeping it eye-friendly as most of them stare at it all day.
Wow, thanks for that! Perfect timing as I just now happen to need something to swap out only the first 7 characters of an id field in a bunch of tables in multiple dbs. (prepping a demo) This works perfectly!
