Editorial Note: I originally wrote this post for the SmartBear blog. You can check out the original here, at their site. While you’re there, have a look around and check out Collaborator, the code review tool. Let’s say that you wanted a definitive explanation, once and for all, as to what constitutes code quality. You …

I’m pretty sure that I’m going to get myself in trouble with this one. Before I get started and the gnashing of teeth and stamping of feet commence, let me offer an introductory disclaimer here. What I am about to say offers no commentary on people with the title, “software architect” (a title that I’ve …

Editorial Note: I originally wrote this post for the SmartBear blog. Check out the original here, at their site. While you’re there, take a look around at the pieces written by other authors as well. A certain ideal of rugged individualism has always permeated programmer culture, at least in some circles. It’s easy enough for …

I recently posted about why you shouldn’t take interview rejection to heart. I promised at least another post, if not more, to follow on that one, and here I am, making good. This is where I question the value of interviews as we know them and describe what I consider to be vaguely depressing …

A while ago Scott Hanselman wrote a post about “paralysis by analysis” which I found to be an interesting read. His blog is a treasure trove of not only technical information but also posts that humanize the developer experience, such as one of my all time favorites. In this particular post, he quoted a stack overflow …

Before you get any ideas, this isn’t about Amway; I’m not going to follow “how to quit your job” with an ellipsis and then a bunch of promises about how you can make a 7 figure income emailing pictures of cats to people. In fact, this post has nothing whatsoever to do with whether or …

A while back, I made a post encouraging people to get fed up every now and then and figure out a better way of doing something. Well, tonight I take my own advice. I am sick and tired of rifling through old projects to find code that I copy and paste into literally every non-trivial …

I’m going to start off with a quote, though I’ve been warned by someone who knows more about writing than I do that this may be a cheesy thing to do.

If you like posts on the topics of static analysis and software architecture, check out the rest of the posts while you’re over there.

Editorial Note: I originally wrote this post for the NDepend blog. You can check out the original here, at their site. While you’re there, check out NDepend and download a trial. There’s a cute term for a blog post or article that advertises, in its title, a number of points of interest. For example, “9 …
