re: What's your most embarrassing coding story? VIEW POST


I remember a moment of personal embarrassment that wasn't a huge deal, but early on with DEV, before we had much in the way of PR review or CI I was coding on the site by myself and I recall hearing the Mac "trashcan" sound in my headphones but wasn't sure what it was. I shrugged it off and moved on.

Later, after I'd deployed some code, I noticed that the logo was entirely missing. I'd accidentally put it in the trash somehow and deployed it with git add . without noticing.

It just felt embarrassing because I heard the trash can, and just didn't think much of it. Of course, things are much more careful these days, not that we don't push weird things up.


Surely someone has created the DEV logo in one div with just CSS by now. You could get rid of it entirely and save entire milliseconds of page load time! Younger Ben was just too radical for his own good.
