S is for SOLID


It's time to get into some coding practices. This is the first in a series exploring the SOLID principles of software development. This month, we'll concentrate on the Single Responsibility Principle. As time allows we'll start looking at the "O" which stands for the Open/Closed principle. Many of us have probably used these principles even though we may not have had fancy terms like this in mind at the time. Hopefully we can help one another think about how we can make use of common sense principles like these in our own work.


Ron Grove is a strong proponent of design patterns and transformed coding practices while he was at Retail Dimensions. He has been in the IT Services area for many years but is also a superb programmer with a strong interest in a broad spectrum of technologies including Delphi, .NET, and mobile.
