  • Apt to this talk - an interesting comparison of OO and Functional code bases

    OO design practices lead to unnecessary bloat in the number of types and the dependencies between them.

  • Don't decouple when you don't need decoupling

    Thanks for the precise description of the potential downsides of excessive "automated decoupling". I'm not that clear on what the 8 lines in the title refers to, though.

  • Help?

    I don't know what I'm doing wrong but I find it so FRIGGIN' hard to follow along with talks because slides aren't included in the video, and for whatever reason if there is a synchronised slide display on the page it is yet to ever work for me.

    As a consequence, I really have no idea what this guy is on about despite being curious and interested.

  • using framework

    I assume you've never written more than 8 lines of code. I don't know much about .net but in Java I rather read Rod Johnson or Gavin King code than your code. most frameworks are nicely written, you need not to be lazy and start reading them. despite of helping in development they learn you how to design.

  • Excellent presentation

    I just needed that - a little motivation to get rid of spring. I've wasted way too much time on it already, and a nasty bug I found the day before yesterday, was just an icing on the cake.
    Greg, as usually, is very bold in his statements, but he has reasonable arguments to back them up.

  • Where in the EventStore source code is the wiring-up done?

    Hi Greg,
    I only just found this now - awesome show! You mentioned that to see an example of the 200 lines of dependency wiring code, we should look in the EventStore source. I've been looking at it on GitHub, but am struggling to find the actual startup code. Whereabouts is it?
    Cheers,
    Phil

    Doh I just found it now (at least I think this is it) - GitHub

    Cheers!

  • Not Introducing Frameworks Should be Your First Thought!

    by Dave Schinkel /

    Your message is awaiting moderation. Thank you for participating in the discussion.

    I agree on trying not to introduce frameworks. When pairing with 8th Light, we did custom mocks, and didn't even use a mocking framework. What we ended up with were simple, simple tests, mocks so simple you don't even need a framework to modify or manage the mocks, and ability to comprehend what is going on even more easier than a mocking framework you'd assume would make clear. So now, I don't look for a mocking framework. I look to custom code SIMPLE mocks in each test class. I might use a framework but I try not to.

  • Why I left .NET

    by Dave Schinkel /

    Your message is awaiting moderation. Thank you for participating in the discussion.

    This guy talks about it in lemans terms, this is exactly why I left MS Code (and frameworks) and coding all JS now (Node, etc.). Bloat.
