No experience could be worse, except maybe sticking pins in your eyes.

Hmmm -- have you tasted my ex-wife's cooking?

@yog-sohoth: I don't view it as a waste of time, as the article points out, the winners are incredibly talented programmers and if this content is used as a teaching tool (which we plan do to at our event next year) it's an extremely powerful way to learn: By seeing how NOT to do things and why. Plus, we'll teach programmers techniques for fixing poorly written code, which I'm sure we've all run into at some point in our careers!!!

What a pointless waste of time! A competition to write the best readable code would be better than one to write deliberately unreadable code.
