Having been inspired by the amount of photos on the internet showing various forms of spectacular failures (http://www.doingitwrong.com), ranging from failed bunny-hops to the most graceful faceplants, I thought that a coding-equivlent of it might be worth trying out.
To that end, this section will cover little snippets of “wrong” code found in the wild. Unlike the photos, where the failure is usually fairly obvious, the failures present in the code snippets are not always as obvious, so a small discussion explaining the failure will always be present.
OK – enough of the BS…! Let’s get started!
