The control of complexity control presents the core problem of software development. The huge variety of decisions a developer faces on a day-to-day basis cry for methods of controlling and containing complexity. Cyclomatic complexity as defined by Thomas McCabe in … Continue reading
Complexity poses a primary obstacle for developers. Our human neurology has a limit to complexity wired into each of us. The basics of Clean Code techniques can ease understanding and productivity by decreasing what we must keep in our working … Continue reading
Duplicated code must surely rank near the top for bad code. The problem is that a new feature or bug will surely cause changes to one clone. Then the other clones will be silently ignored. This will likely create incorrect … Continue reading
