A Test To See If You Write Sloppy Software (Page 1 of 3 )
As a freelance programmer, I have built quite a few web applications over the years, some pretty and some not-so-pretty. Before I got involved in PHP, I had worked mostly in Java, with its rigid and forced programming style.
With PHP, of course, it's easy to get lazy and write sloppy code, and PHP will always perform well no matter what. Recently, however, I took over maintenance of a web application which set new lows for maintainability, quality, and structure.
As I set about cleaning up this application, I took a few notes on what its most glaring problems were, and have devised a little quiz for you to take.
