I’ll write more about that sometime soon, but right now I want to spend a little bit of time talking about a deceptively hard problem django-registration has to deal with: usernames. And while I could write this as one of those “falsehoods programmers believe about X” articles, my personal preference is to actually explain why this is trickier than people think, and offer some advice on how to deal with it, rather than just provide mockery with no useful context.

If you are writing software for usernames this is an interesting dive into edge cases. If you know programmers and wonder why they are so weird, this is a good illustration of the kind of edge cases that programmers need to readily understand how to predict and then design for. 😳
