Anonymous Confessions from Programmers.Confess
After working with software for a few years i no longer enjoy coding in my spare time.
I sometimes use curse words to name variables, because that's just how childish I am.
A multiplayer, drawing game from the idiot behind Coding Confessional.
I was recently criticised slightly so i broke 2 years worth of project code into a nest of eval()'s and then went on holiday
It feels nice when non-programming friends think its cool I'm learning Ruby ; I still have no idea how to write a program after over a year....
I would rather use BASIC than actually have to make stuff in Ada and I honestly think people who like Ada seem to be, in general, boring.
I work with an active codebase that isn't compiled, so all files are live. I don't do any sort of branching, and will often work on files without making backups.
At one time or another, I have committed almost every sin on this list. I'm sorry.
I work for a company that gives 0 shits about planning, so I give 0 shits about how good my code is.
I deliberately put a 2 second delay in a JSP page before loading the data that was fetch via AJAX, because the client complains about seeing the preloader gif image they requested only a fraction of a second
I sometimes write code I don't fully understand and nobody else either and are feared to ask me about it.
