The Scary Programming (Variable Names)

terror

Ranting is not my favorite way to express, I’m more like a constructive guy. But also, the blog is a reflection of what I’m doing right now. And for the title of the post you can guess I’m not doing a lot of GIS.

Lately I’ve been spending my time reading some questionable code, which made me think about the habits of programming. There’s no exact science here, but it is true that bad handled code can explode really fast creating a series of problems.

  • Maintenance hells.
  • A bug fixed, uncovers another bug.
  • Hard to get somebody up to speed.
  • Lots of snorting (iup that’s me).
  • Clear increase of gray hair (iup, that’s me).

I started drafting a post about this topic. Then, it exploded in size. So I decided to split it in digestible bits of enjoyment.

The original title was: The Code Apocalypse but I settled for something milder because… that’s my style :-D.
