Often times, I hear folks exclaim that they’ve been on “40 development projects over the past 10 years.” Or, “70 projects spanning a 20 year career.” They say this as if it’s some badge of honor. But I’m not so sure that it is.

Ha yes this is sooooooooo true!! I've seen dozens of "projects" that should have been submitted directly to the thedailywtf instead of source control. Sadly, this comes from developers with many more years experience than me. In all cases they have either delegated the responsibility for maintaining those apps to someone else or they are unwilling to change their own code with full knowledge that it is horrific.
