    I love this Mayan calendar implementation! 2013? There is no 2013!!!

    I thought the same thing. Why go to all the trouble of dynamically populating the the Year selector when the "validation" is limited to 2011 and 2012, unless you know something?

                // set query filter based on selected value
                switch (GlobalVars.SelectedIndex) {
                    case 2:
                        {
                            GlobalVars.Year = '2011';
                            break;
                        }

    Just a note: If this were back in (say) 1997 or so, there would have been a big debate as to weather 2000 was a leap year or not.

    When asked the question "What day is it?", the proper response is (as any programmer knows) "Today!", sometimes "Monday" will suffice!

    To be fair, most date selector UIs are incredibly slow and clunky to use. They are mostly useful for figuring out a date that you aren't sure about, but they're often quite painful. If you already have the date in mind then typing it is usually far easier. A smart text box that turns anything you type into a known date would be handy. Better than a "date picker", as they're generally called. A calendar view is useful for associating days with weeks or counting days, but not much else...

    Also, JavaScript reliance is evil. Also, that code is really bad...

    +1

    A switched-on clueful app offers both options for each date selector.

    I agree to a large degree. When I was at Uni we spent a lot of time re-inventing the wheel (data structures in particular) in Java. While it is good to understand data structures, I think peoiple need to be encouraged to use or extend existing ones that were made by smarter people where possible rather than making their own linked list.

    Don't get me wrong, I understand that creating a linked list helps teach how a linked list works, but if you want people to understand 'under the hood' teach them in C....If you teach people that they can make Data Structures in Java, then the freshman graduates will think that they should always make their own DS. I'm near certain that few if any of them would be able to develop even the simplest Data Structure as efficiently as the people who created the Containers in java.util

    Unfortunately, I think if things (not just in CS) were taught properly, too many students would complain courses are too hard and there's be low attendance.....

    I much prefer being able to type dd <tab> mm <tab> yyyy (or even simply ddmmyyyy than having to select anything. The bank I use makes this particularly cumbersome - it allows typing of dates, but requires the user enter the separator (and also supports one of the calendar pickers). Personally, if I want to search for all transactions since July 2008 it is a lot quicker for me to use the Numeric KeyPad to enter 01072009 than to fiddle around skipping months and years in a Calendar picker.....

    The article starts with "It's no secret web developers are generally considered...." This suggests an attitude toward the WebDev, not an attack insisting it's true.

    When it follows up with: "...and with good reason" It's still not attacking all WebDev's (if you read the rest of it) it's merely highlighting that as the internet exploded on the scene and everyone wanted a website, this area of development got flooded with script kiddies who thought they could....

    It does not suggest that ALL Web Developers are incomeptent idiots, it merely highlights a presumption that this is the case because of the disproportionate number of Script Kiddies in Web Development compared to the in other Programming roles.

    For the record, I have worked with a lot of Muppets in Application Development too and perhpas they're just lucky that application source is not so readily available for people to inspect. But...from my experience about 2/3 of programmers outside of Web Development are useless/incompetent/dumb/underqualified/whatever (yes THAT many). In Web Development this figure seems a lot closer to 4/5 or more..... IT is flooded with useless incompetence, however I think even Blind Freddie in his naivest hour would agree that Web Development seems to attract a lot more than it's fair share - perhaps this is because it is easy to make things look really flash so business people are impressed.....

    I would love to work in place that:

    1. hires only graduates of CS as web developers
    2. does not depend heavily on "designs" provided by Photo Shop artists as a GUI specs

    until then, I must say, that sadly, but we have developed more than one date-picker "control" even though some us knew that there is a plugin for that.

    JPEG-driven development is my everyday nightmare. I believe the problem is that JPEGs say 1000 words to upper managment, while software architects just say a lot of sophisticated words which are hard to comprehend. What I believe is necessary is to develop a visual language in which architects could express their thoughts to managment. I am not talking about UML -- it's too complicated. Look for instance at the domain of real Architecture (that one which deals with buildings) : architects in that area olways provide visualisations, beautiful pictures, perspectives, and so on. CS lacks this kind of visual language :(

    Problem is that CS courses have too much math and little hands-on coding with someone that actually codes. The works coders i knows are teachers from academy.

    Let me take you up on it. I have a bunch of C written for Z8 Encore!, some 20k lines worth. I recompiled those projects using gcc 4.2 with a bunch of command-line defines to massage types to retain their sizes and to nop-out near/far specifiers. Not only does it compile, but it even passes most of the unit tests -- those were coded to run on simulator anyway, so they don't care much for chip's peripherals.

    IOW: Yeah, if you don't educate yourself and are sloppy, then yes, you are holding back "state of the art" whatever language you end up using.

    Hey congratulations! You just got the point of this website, to make fun of poorly written code. Today it is a javascript WTF, tomorrow it might be c/c++, Java, classic ASP, or really anything else "code" related.

    I am a Web Developer, have been for a number of years and I can say with certainty that the code posted today is terrible, and deserves to be made fun of.

    Well put. I'm going to add that the people we are making fun of aren't "less gifted" as Patrick put it. They are, in fact, complete incompetents who refuse to learn or improve and arrogantly take money from companies only because matching incompetent Dibertesque management can't tell shizz from Shinola when it comes to programming. We need a "dailymanagementwtf.come" to cover those stories, though.

    Case in point (and this probably should get its own page, but wtf):

    When I was teaching C years back, my first assignment was basically to code and compile "Hello, world." It wasn't a real challenge, but it got the students learning the dev environment without actually having to program. One student diligently turned in the first assignement. He was a programmer for a local company who was trying to take advantage of company-sponsored training.

    Now, my tests were always 4 parts: 1) true-false 2) multiple-choice 3) fill-in-the-blank and 4) Essay. 2/3 of the test was #1 and #2. This student's test was so bad, random chance would have scored better. I asked my wife to take the test. She barely knew how to turn on a computer at the time and was going to refuse, but I insisted. She outscored this "professional" programmer even though she never attended the class.

    The semester ended and his final was as bad as the mid-term. I gave him the F he deserved. A week later, after he got his grades, I got a panicked phone call from him. He didn't understand why he got an F. I said, "you turned in only the first assignment, but that was only 1 of 12. As I discussed the first day, I consider practical programming more important than the tests. Assignments were 2/3 of your grade. Did you hear and read something the other students didn't?" To my shock, his reply was something I never expected: "but I thought my test grades would carry me."

    Come to find out, he was not a US citizen, but here on a work visa. After he failed my course, his company discovered that he didn't know how to program at all. He was facing firing and deportation at the same time.

    Did I feel sorry for his family? Yes, I did. Did I blame myself? No, I didn't. Did I blame him for pretending to be competent and taking other peoples' money and give them nothing in return? Yes, definitely. Though, in retrospect, I'd have canned his manager(s) too. Incompetent worker and management too incompetent to know the difference. But as I said above, we need another website.

    thedailywtf isn't about "less gifted" people. It's about the intolerable and incompetent scammers that, through either intent or ignorance, equate themselves with those of us who give a damn about our work.

    The problem with text dates is you never know if the user is going to input dd/mm/yyyy, mm/dd/yyyy, or ISO standard yyyy/mm/dd, or worse - nn/nn/nn (which could be any of the previous formats with two digit years).

    'nuff said.

    Fantastic story, but not his point. The elitism he's talking about isn't the part where the bad code is made fun of. The part that rubbed him the wrong way (and me) is the part where it's implied that web programmers are all knuckle dragging halfwits when compared to "true" programmers.

    "It's no secret that web developers are generally considered the red headed stepchildren of programming, and with good reason," writes Joe. "With its proliferation of forgiving and loosely structured languages and the huge demand for web developers in our modern web-centric world, it's not surprising that the field is practically overrun by script monkeys with no real programming background. Armed with a shelf full of books on all the latest web technologies and a subscription to Experts' Exchange, they enthusiastically pound away at their keyboards day after day, happily and cluelessly producing oceans of spaghetti code so bad that even Olive Garden wouldn't serve it."

    That sounds damning, except that describes nearly every bad self taught programmer I've ever met, many of whom started with a shelf of Borland C++ books and a pirated version of the compiler. Does my anecdotal evidence trump his?

    This very site is proof that jacktards exist in every aspect of coding across the board. The perception that web developers are worse stems from the same type of reasoning that causes PS3 fanboys and XBox fanboys to get into fistfights.

    'A programming language is only ever as bad as your lack of understanding of it.'

    The reason why Javascript is percieved as a 'bad' language is because there are so many incompetent people in the field. Anyone who can copy&paste can create a website and put it online. But that does not mean it's impossible to write good code. Just look at all the google webapps.

    How is it that after 99 comments, including several mocking JavaScript, C, and C++, that no one has pointed out that this awful code was obviously written by a VB programmer? I mean, look at the coding style. Look at the capitalized names! This is an example of someone trying to make a web page and JavaScript into Windows Forms and VB. There's the root of the problem.
