Programmaticus Nogoogleus

Over the past few months, I’ve become acutely aware of the species of programmer that drives the P. Newbieflamerous to attack. I’ve dubbed them P. Nogoogleus. This species appears on various programmer communities and tries to get more experienced programmers to write their code FOR them.

As fellow tech blogger Matt Gemmell wrote, “There’s an entire class of so-called developers whose first and final tactic when given a problem to solve is to simply ask for the completed solution elsewhere, commonly on web forums or other suitable help channels.”

And, ohhhhh BOY are there a lot of them.
