ToughtWorks’ Technology Radar – new edition

15 02 2014

Is this new technology worth learning or maybe it is yet ready to use in production? ToughtWorks is a consulting company working, among others, on assesments of emerging technologies maturity.

Here is the new edition of its Technology Radar РJanuary 2014. I am sure that everybody will find out what interests him in this document.

For me worth noting is JavaScript expansion – nowadays it is widely used, not only on client side in web browsers but also on the server side.

Another thing is SMS and USSD API growth. It did surprise me – I was really up to the HTTP APIs usage. Such situation may be good for telcos, but not very much convenient for developers.

Clean Code: Dont use if’s! Use polymorphism instead

23 03 2013

Writing clean code is crucial, so the software developer constantly needs to improve his skills and code understanding.

My way to do it, is to explore others’ best practices. Here is one of them to consider:

I am not fully convinced that all the if‘s shall be refactored and removed, however the example given is much cleaner with polymorphism. Moreover it is testable and deprived of code smells and arguments of this guy seems to be reasonable.

You may also want visit the Anti if campaign page :) – Thanks Maciek!
