How can we design our code to make it difficult for former workers to hack and discourage them?

    That's the wrong approach. Obfuscating code is false security no matter what the context. You think you have done something to make code difficult to read or understand but more likely to make your life difficult and not deter a persistent adversary. Far better to control access to the code.

    If you or your company is smart enough to write code, then you should also know that using any good encryption toll, like TrueCrypt, is likely your best defence.

    But, I have to ask: How are former employees even getting access to your code?

    This is the real problem that your company had better address, ASAP!!!
