Is This Why You’re Bad At Programming?

What are the bad programming habits that make bad software? What are the common excuses that programmers make for writing software that is worse than it needs to be? What are the common software developer mistakes that people make?

In this episode, Dave Farley describes the common excuses that developers make for doing a worse job and describes his software engineering approach to how we can debunk mythology and lazy thinking in software. So if you are a junior software developer or any software developer who strives to do a great job, take a look and see if you have any of these bad habits, and listen to Dave’s advice on how best to avoid them, or maybe show where Dave is wrong.
