Flexibility is essential for long-lived codebases, however, it comes at a price. It requires effort to maintain flexibility and improperly-implemented flexibility can actually make a codebase harder to maintain. In this article, I show how good flexibility can be extracted from the structure of our code with minimal effort. But before we get into that, let’s discuss what flexibility in a codebase means.
Will QC ever become a reality, and will it make existing software developers obsolete? In this video, Johan answers these and other “qubits-like” questions, like Java-based Strange.
In this video, we join Christian in his live coding challenge of refactoring the famous Gilded Rose Kata.
In this video, Michał Płachta focuses on problems with mutable states, explains why pure functions can’t use them in majority of cases, and shows you how to fight mutability by working with immutable values, which are used extensively in functional programming.
In this tour de force live coding session, an expert Python coach Reuven Lerner shows you how functions work behind the scenes and how you can use them in different ways.
