Last week, a post written by programmer and teacher Bill Sourour went viral called "Code I'm Still Ashamed Of". In it he recounts a horrible story of being a young programmer that landed a job building a website for a pharmaceutical company. The whole post is worth a read, but the upshot is he was duped into helping the company skirt drug advertising laws in order to persuade young women to take a particular drug. He later found out the drug was known to worsen depression and at least one young woman committed suicide while taking it. He found out his sister was taking the drug and warned her off it.
Other programmers have since come out to share their own experiences.
