General Development "Programming is hard. Don't ever feel bad because you aren't as good at 'just googling it' as the person next to you. Don't ever let hackathon snobs talk you out of creating the next Twitter for cats or Yelp for public washrooms. Even the dumbest ideas (like trying to make animated polygons disappear and reappear) will help you improve as a programmer. Learning to program is largely about learning to learn - and the best way to learn is to do." For some reason, I love this short story.

so, most of these documented atrocities are committed using the most popular languages...

There are definitely C# ones as well.


The bottom line is that it's possible to write crap in any language, but it makes sense to see WTFs from code monkeys in the most popular languages.
