What was the nicest codebase you've inherited without the original author(s)?


What made this particular codebase stand out above others? What did the original authors of the code do well?

Documentation? Tests?

Perhaps nothing about the code itself, but rather the surrounding environment?

"After having five quotes for new equipment previously rejected as too expensive, I realized this would be the same in this case," fish says. "So I decided to get a quote for secondhand equipment to save time.

"My manager went out for a meeting and came back in a rage."

Ask HN: What is the most unethical thing you've done as a programmer?


There was an article a while back about how cell service providers were selling extremely granular location data, and some of the programmers working on those systems immediately showed up on HN to comment on their moral dilemma. I suspect it's not an isolated case.
