Five Tips To Make Good Object-Oriented Code Better
Oct 28, 2009 @ 08:58:45

Brandon Savage has posted a set of five tips on how you can make your object-oriented code work better and be easier to maintain in the long run.

Last week, I did a talk at the Frederick Web meetup about tips and tricks for improving your object-oriented code. A lot of these tips were adapted from a fabulous presentation by Stefan Priebsch but the ideas are by no means original to him, and they’re exceptionally good ideas when you’re talking about object-oriented code. Slides are at the end of this blog post, and I'm happy to do this talk over again for local groups.

His list of five is:

  • Use Objects. Lots of Objects
  • Use Interfaces To Make APIs Predictable
  • Use Dependency Injection
  • Composition Over Inheritance
  • Create Loosely Coupled Classes
