The Daily WTF
The Daily WTF (also called Worse Than Failure from February to December 2007) is a humorous blog dedicated to “Curious Perversions in Information Technology”. The blog, run by Alex Papadimoulis, “offers living examples of code that invites the exclamation ‘WTF!?’” (What The Fuck!?) and “recounts tales of disastrous development, from project management gone spectacularly bad to inexplicable coding choices.”
In addition to horror stories, The Daily WTF “serve[s] as [a] repositor[y] of knowledge and discussion forums for inquisitive web designers and developers” and has introduced several anti-patterns, including Softcoding and the Inner-Platform Effect.
