Spaghetti Code

An (insulting) programming term

Good code is well structured so that another programmer can easily follow the logic of the code.

Spaghetti code is the complete opposite. It is quite an insult to be called a spaghetti coder as it implies incompetence and unprofessionalism.

Spaghetti code has chaotic jumps from one point to another with little or no comments in the source code to explain what it is meant to be doing.

Hence the idea of a tangled mess such as spaghetti.
