Lite stulna punkter att gå efter!

Jag rekomenderar att läsa hela artiklen här: https://github.com/thomasdavis/best-practices

För eget intresse tog jag ut några punkter jag fann intressanta!

 

Don’t do hard things, do easy things.

  • Simple is better than complex.
  • Complex is better than complicated.
  • Flat is better than nested.
  • Readability counts.
  • If the implementation is hard to explain, it’s a bad idea.
  • If the implementation is easy to explain, it may be a good idea.

Refactoring > Rewriting

Common Excuses For A Software Rewrite

  1. The Code Sucks
  2. ”We’re So Much Smarter Now”
  3. We Picked The Wrong Platform/Language

Why Rewriting Is (Almost) Never A Good Idea

  1. It Will Take Longer Than You Think
  2. Markets Change
  3. Existing Customers Become Frustrated
  4. Refactoring Can Cleanup The Code
  5. You Don’t Control The Rewrite, It Controls You

To write effective unit tests, you need to write testable code

Flaw #1: Constructor does Real Work

Warning Signs

  • new keyword in a constructor or at field declaration
  • Static method calls in a constructor or at field declaration
  • Anything more than field assignment in constructors
  • Object not fully initialized after the constructor finishes (watch out forinitialize methods)
  • Control flow (conditional or looping logic) in a constructor
  • Code does complex object graph construction inside a constructor rather than using a factory or builder
  • Adding or using an initialization block

Flaw #2: Digging into Collaborators

  • Objects are passed in but never used directly (only used to get access to other objects)
  • Law of Demeter violation: method call chain walks an object graph with more than one dot (.)
  • Suspicious names: context, environment, principal, container, or manager

Flaw #3: Brittle Global State & Singletons

Warning Signs

  • Adding or using singletons
  • Adding or using static fields or static methods Adding or using static initialization blocks Adding or using registries
  • Adding or using service locators

Flaw #4: Class Does Too Much

Warning Signs

  • Summing up what the class does includes the word “and”
  • Class would be challenging for new team members to read and quickly “get it” Class has fields that are only used in some methods
  • Class has static methods that only operate on parameters

The name is Dennis Sangmo!

Jag har ett brinnande intresse av att utveckla webbapplikationer och gör detta både professionellt och på min fritid. En stor del av den tiden jag inte spenderar till att utveckla brukar jag lägga på att läsa på och hålla mig uppdaterad i utvecklings-sfären på internet.

Under det senaste året har jag ökat mitt intresse för att designa användarvänliga applikationer och allt som hör till att öka den positiva upplevelsen hos en besökare eller användare.
