comment Asking for a code sample of the company at an interview
It is still useful to see if they can cherry pick good code to show you. The most frustrating part of dealing with bad code often is that no one recognizes it is bad and should be fixed.

comment Interpretation of DRY principle
To account for the possible combinations of values for the booleans dosomething and dosomething2, you would need 4 functions, not 2, in addition to the base createTrajectoryFromPoint function. This approach does not scale well as the number of options increases, and even naming the functions gets tedious.

Since the question was about app.config, not web.config, I suspect this is for a desktop application, and the "hacker" doesn't even need to compromise a web server.

It seems relevant to ask what sort of digital signing, if any, has been upheld in court cases.
