The 2014 Software Craftsmanship Anti-Patterns Wall Calendar is here!  You can order one for yourself, your team room, or that developer down the hall that "needs" it, today.  If you're quick, you'll even have it before the holidays.  The calendars are available for sale from our Gear Store, at

This year's calendar focuses on anti-patterns; things you should probably avoid doing if you're interested in delivering quality software.  We brought back our old favorite from the 2012 calendar, the Golden Hammer, along with a bunch of new ones like Frankencode and Mushroom Management.
