These fall under both categories:

  • Being forced to use the wrong tool for the job
  • Not getting good feedback during your career and having your legs kicked out from under you once you do get good feedback
  • Configuring JVMs and poor java app documentation
  • Too much meta magic in Python with too little documentation
  • ORMs that never support the database functionality you need
  • Programming practices that encourage poor resource utilization when using ORMs that mask the resource management.
  • Ignoring tweaks to existing technologies in favor of over-engineered solutions that are often difficult to setup, integrate, or end up brittle.
