I like to refer to a particular combination of lava flow + ball of mud as the "Katamari anti-pattern." Everyone just adds whatever classes, libraries and even frameworks they want to solve every little problem encountered as the project snowballs along with no real thought towards architecture, duplication, code standards or the eventual unmanageable spaghetti-code dependency hell it will become.
I appreciate the reference!
Nice name "Katamari anti-pattern" :) It's interesting how these things keep popping up in projects right?
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
