just sharing a design decision i gotta make while doing this enhancement/refactoring

a) use a basic constructor
b) use a *Builder

which to use and when? 🤔

#ooDesign #ddDesign #builderPattern
im going with the basic constructor, pluggin in all the params i need to make the obj "whole"
theres just not enough going on in the init of the obj to justify bustin out a whole Builder for it

i do have an invariant/rule-validation to carry out during inits, but it's just a trivial conditional
so ill KISS and not #overengineer this,

altho in the back of my mind im thinking, what if next iteration, i need to do this other thing during reconstitution from the data store??
but thats just trying to predict the future and i mumble #YAGNI to myself

so the solid grasp oop ddd gof gods are happy. For now

Domain Driven Design (DDD) made plain broke down to the bone gristle. cus i need that science to level up my code, but miss me with all the stuffy acronyms and jargon. 🧵

- the actual problem
- what we're trying to solve with the code for the user
- the set of problems that the users ask the developers to solve
- the subject matter
domain driven

switching from management roles to individual contributor roles and still making the same if not more bread is a slept on power move
moral of the story if/when the toxicity and burnout gets to be to much - make lateral moves

How do y'all like to ramp up on new tech?

For me, when the need for a new language, library, framework, shiny thing, etc pops up - i find that i usually take the same general steps

and the 7-bullet list i jotted down in my notes became this thread:
1. pick a language, any language. or framework, library etc.

no tech is perfect. don't sweat it the choice too much. they all have pros and cons - but do try to pick one that has good community adoption so you can get help when you run into blockers

re: adding code comments with respect to the single responsibility principle

As a #selfDocumentingCode fanatic, I do appreciate that some kinds of comments go a long way:

One comment/ blurb (1-3 lines):

- at the top of a class about the single responsibility of the class

- in the project readme/wiki about the single responsibility of the application

Some benefits:

- helps keep the class/application at the appropriate size

- helps make the class/application be easier to understand/work-with

phrases never (before tonight) heard in a #PresidentialDebate

"shut up man"
"do you understand what this clown is doing"
"shush for a minute"
"lemme shut you down for a second"
"he's a fool"
"nobody cares"

I feel some more coming on
"you're the worst president evarr"

"Always implement things when you actually need them,
never when you just foresee that you need them." - Ron Jeffries

i feel attacked 🙄

(over-abstraction is one of my guilty pleasures) 😅
like, sometimes i'll take that advice to "code to the interface" to the extreme, just cus i can, and i'll make everything an interface. what you can do with polymorphism and dependency injection is fun ...
but man is it an over-abstraction time suck when trying to just focus on "keeping it simple" KISS minimum viable product. gotta draw the line somewhere and make concrete classes and move forward ...
