AntiPatterns

Postby Remou on Fri Oct 17, 2008 1:20 pm

Here http://sourcemaking.com/antipatterns is an interesting article on common anti-patterns.

What Is an AntiPattern?
AntiPatterns, like their design pattern counterparts, define an industry vocabulary for the common defective processes and implementations within organizations. A higher-level vocabulary simplifies communication between software practitioners and enables concise description of higher-level concepts.

An AntiPattern is a literary form that describes a commonly occurring solution to a problem that generates decidedly negative consequences. The AntiPattern may be the result of a manager or developer not knowing any better, not having sufficient knowledge or experience in solving a particular type of problem, or having applied a perfectly good pattern in the wrong context.
