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.

While I can see the value in some corner cases perhaps, I feel like the acceptor, such as a parameter name on a method should describe what it accepts.

Maybe it's just because I grew up with that, but putting the units for example, on the data type itself seems just ... unusual, and kind of awkward to me.

Maybe that's not the best argument against it, but I place a lot of value on being able to lean on habits, so long as the habits aren't actually counterproductive. All else considered equal, I place more value in doing something in a way that's supported by "muscle memory" than I do on implementing something perhaps in a more formalized way, and the reason is, if you can lean into your habits, as long as you develop decent habits you get less bugs and more productivity.
