Bad Things Programmers Do

[Updated 14 Jan 2009 with new article titles.]

I’ve decided to start a series about the bad things many programmers do. Suggestions at would be appreciated!

Many things on this list are about things that programmers shouldn’t really do, but do anyway. Many of them make small little programs, but some are really high profile or really popular, and often are looked up to by less prominent programmers as how to do things, which only propagates the problem.

Articles in this series:

Operating System Conventions (Part 2)
App Paths? What App Paths?
Uncommon Controls and Dialogs
Hardcoded Paths
Inappropriate Tray Usage

This list will be updated with links when I’ve published the articles. Yay!
