Voodoo programming is the use by guess or cookbook of an obscure or hairy system, feature, or algorithm that one does not truly understand.

It may refer to:

  • Deep magic, techniques that are not widely known, and may be deliberately kept secret.
  • Cargo cult programming, a style of computer programming that is characterized by the ritual inclusion of code or program structures that serve no real purpose.
