  • How Would You Build Up a City from Components?

    Aliaksei Papou explores how components and common design patterns such as the Observer and Finite State Machine make it possible to design an application such that it can grow and change according to your needs using the analogy of a house.

  • Design Pattern Automation

    Despite the high total cost of ownership of a line of code, a lot of boilerplate code still gets written every day. Much of it could be avoided if we only had smarter compilers. Indeed, most boilerplate code stems from repetitive implementation of design patterns that are so well-understood that they could be implemented automatically if we had a way to teach it to compilers.

  • Refactoring Legacy Applications: A Case Study

    To refactor legacy code, the ideal is to have a suite of unit tests to prevent regressions. However it's not always that easy. This article describes a methodology to safely refactor legacy code.

  • Designing and Developing Cross-Cutting Features

    Every developer has had to integrate with another system, API or component at one point or another. And, often, a business feature must span systems. If you’ve been on a project like this or have one in the pipeline then this article provides strategies to handle the change. Also, this article covers separating system boundaries and what that means for your technical design.

  • Faster, Better, Higher – But How?

    One of the main challenges when designing software architecture is the consideration of quality attributes. Not only their design turns out to be difficult, but also the specification of these attributes. Consequently, many problems in software systems are directly related to the specification and design of quality attributes such as modifiability or performance, to name just a few.

  • Interview and Book Excerpt: Service Design Patterns

    "Service Design Patterns" catalogs design patterns that cover the entire lifecycle of web services. This book is the latest addition to the Martin Fowler signature series which also contains a section on consumer driven contracts contributed by Ian Robinson. InfoQ talked to Rob Daigneau, the author of the book, regarding various topics related to the core idea behind "Service Design Patterns".

  • Succeeding with Dependency Injection

    While the principal pattern is easy to understand it can be difficult to succeed with Dependency Injection without considering the larger context. DI is an application of the principle of Inversion of Control and to succeed with IoC you’ll also need to invert your thinking. This article provides a sketch of the mental model you need to adopt to succeed with DI.

  • Interview and Book Review: Pro HTML5 and CSS3 Design Patterns

    "Pro HTML5 and CSS3 Design Patterns" catalogs many common patterns in modern HTML5 applications. InfoQ talked to one author, Dionysios Synodinos, about the book and working with HTML5.

  • Dependency Injection with Mark Seemann

    Mark Seemann, author of Dependency Injection in .NET, talks to us about the differences between DI and Service Locators and the importance of having a Composite Root. He also touches on how these all relate back to the SOLID principals of object oriented design.

  • Agile Architecture Interactions

    James Madison shows how architects can bring agile and architecture practices together to pragmatically balance business and architectural priorities while delivering both with agility.

  • Patterns-Based Engineering: Successfully Delivering Solutions via Patterns

    InfoQ spoke with Lee and Celso about the Patterns-Based Engineering: Successfully Delivering Solutions via Patterns book, discussing patterns for working with patterns, MDD and the promise of reuse. The book focuses on how to improve efforts in identifying, producing, managing and consuming patterns – leading to better software delivered more quickly with fewer resources.

  • Book on Leveraging Domain-Specific Languages by Martin Fowler with Rebecca Parsons

    In their new book Martin Fowler and Rebecca J. Parsons address the topic of Domain-Specific Languages. “Domain-Specific Languages” does not only address the concepts behind DSLs, but also tries to explain the subject in a pragmatic manner using examples in Java, C# and other languages.The book contains different patterns that reveal best practices in designing DSLs.
