SPOT Recently (weeks ago) I saw something that ACRONYMED part of my programming approach. SINGLE POINT OF TRUTH SPOT There is only a single point in the entire code-base that knows the TRUTH of "that". I generally use "Knowledge". SPOK wouldn't be bad. Maybe make it…

Libraries are your (not) problem

When adding a library to your project, all the library problems become your problems as well. This popped up on LinkedIn recently. I like the intent. It's definitely something to be think about when bringing in a library. I normally review change history, last release, issue trackers, etc to make…
