|(jargon)||brute force and ignorance - (BFI) A popular design technique at many software
houses - brute force coding unrelieved by any knowledge of
how problems have been previously solved in elegant ways.
Dogmatic adherence to design methods tends to encourage this
sort of thing. Characteristic of early larval stage
programming; unfortunately, many never outgrow it.|
Also encountered in the variants BFMI - brute force and massive ignorance, and BFBI - brute force and bloody ignorance.
"Gak, they used a bubble sort! That's strictly BFI."
