@kfield: If you teach people how to write obfuscated code just for fun, chances they will use it one day - maybe they are being taken off a project, maybe they are getting fired, who knows?


Now if you teach them how NOT to do things, but how to do them better and more cleanly, then I am 100% in agreement.

I have seen some code where a subsequent maintainer added the comment 'the f*****r who wrote this should be shot', and indeed it was truly unreadable. And also the opposite, where the code was elegantly written and comments just enough to it was simple to understand, and also admire. I know which coder I would hire.

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.

That spoiler gives somes hints but not an explanation and the spoilers point 2 is just confusing.

Here's an explanation.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
