Sample text

Another problem is that a single owner can be in trouble and hide the fact. ” Refactoring can be more difficult; when interfaces are public and require a lot of cooperation to change, there is political pressure not to change them (even if they need it). Sequential Owners (“Rental Property” or “Serial Monogamy”) Some groups have a single owner for a package at any given time, but that owner will be decided on a task-by-task or iteration-by-iteration basis. This can be good in that it gives people variety, but they may not get a chance to build deep enough expertise to be particularly effective.

Anybody can change any part they need to. The key benefit of this approach is that it is the least obstructive to getting things done quickly. The ability to refactor is 54 improved, as there are fewer published interfaces. For the right team, this can be an effective mode. ) There are potential downsides as well: ✧ ✧ ✧ ✧ ✧ Some people take personal pride in their code, and don’t want others to touch it. ” This resembles “musical chairs” carried even further, perhaps aggravating the risk that nobody will be expert enough, and that nobody will care for the long-term value.

How a template is represented (currently a string) 2. How substitution is made 3. What codes and values to substitute (%CODE% and %ALTCODE%) The first two items are part of the nature of how a template works; the third is the “business logic” that tells how it’s used. A stand-alone Template class would address the first two points. That was not obvious from the monster routine we started with. This shows how our sense of the code smells can change over time: I’d now argue that an over-dependence on the String type keeps us working at too low a level.
