My Secret Life as a Spaghetti Coder
home | about | contact | privacy statement
Don't encode information into a string like "AAHD09102008BSHC813" and give that gibberish to people. Don't name your project that, don't give that to me as a value or way to identify something, and don't make humans see or interact with that in any form. (If you are generating something similar and parse it with a program in automated fashion, I don't care what you call it.)

Give it a name we can use while communicating with each other and keep the rest of the information in a database. I can look it up if I need to know it.

Do not use file names, folder names, or project names as your as your database. I don't want to be required to scan each item in whatever set you chose and translate it using a lookup table to find what I'm looking for. I don't want to memorize the lookup table either.

Hey! Why don't you make your life easier and subscribe to the full post or short blurb RSS feed? I'm so confident you'll love my smelly pasta plate wisdom that I'm offering a no-strings-attached, lifetime money back guarantee!
