As a programmer, you usually encounter code that makes you wonder just who in their right mind would write code like that. In fact, there's a whole community that shames bad code at thedailywtf.com. This. This is meant to be the exact opposite. This is to celebrate the good clean / design that we as programmers write. Post everything from single sentence snippets to entire github repositories. We value well commented readable code over clever obfuscations.
