Back when I started working as a programmer, my team was made up by a bunch of noobs. We were all bad at debugging and would spend countless hours chasing bugs. Some bugs were worse than others and some where dumber that others. Whenever we spend a lot of time looking for a problem just to turn out to be something so simple, we would then write down that shameful mistake on a dry-eraser board. Soon, the shameful stories started to pile up and the board became to be known as the wall of shame. I miss that board. It was a fun reminder of how dumb we were and how far we had come.
I want to replicate that here. I would love to hear your wall of shame stories. So please, leave your story on the comments. I am sure we all could use a reminder that we are not the only “dumb” programmer around 🙂
