What are the *worst* practices in software development that you follow? On this podcast we ask many people this question. The truth is that programming is hard, so we all do what works best for us, even if it goes against what's commonly seen as the right thing to do. Along the way, we'll try to have a few laughs and not take it too seriously. Expect one very short episode each week.
