+Wouter van Nifterick What word defines a piece of code that can't be covered by the tests of the public methods of the class that owns it?

DEAD CODE!!! of course.

Simply delete it!!! Don't waste time in tests!

This is my recommendation!

Yeah, that's pretty much every commercial map all summed up.

Hacked!

When I tried to visit the Jacob Zuma Trust website this morning to try and learn more about what they do after reading the EWN article about them sponsoring the Chinese Formula E racing team, I was faced with a full HD porn video!

I know he's a ** but that is taking it a bit far. 😉

Grammar matters!
 
REST is a convention, not a specification, but there are good reasons for that convention…

FLOSS, The Right Way To Do Policing IT In Belgium

“Belgium’s police forces are increasingly switching to open source web technology. The federal police and already 49 local police forces across the country are using the openpolice.be platform for their websites. In total 126 of police websites in Belgium are reusing and sharing the platform.”

While writing my article on DI on mORMot, +Stefan Glienke correctly commented on a first draft that I was confusing the Dependency Injection and the Service Locator patterns. This led me to do some investigation, and to be honest, I have more questions now.

I now understand the difference between the two patterns, but, I've found that some people feel that Service Locator is an anti-pattern, (which is a pity as I was quite fond of it) as it hides your dependencies, and that is why constructor based dependency injection is preferred - the compiler can assist with detecting breaking changes, and CodeInsight provides valuable information to the developer. (I should add "when creating a new system", because retro fitting DI will be a nightmare)

Am I right, that on a very basic level, DI simply states - provide your dependencies as parameters, rather than fetching them? If that case the pattern will even work for good old procedural programming.

+Moz Le okay, I'm starting to see it's evilness.

I must admit, there was a bit of confusion on my part again, but to my defense it's an easy one to make.

The pattern I'm fond of, it turns out, is the Factory Locator pattern. It's still pull, but it is safe to use with value objects. The anti - pattern might be when you introduce singleton support.

Good riddance
 
Flash used to be the only way to unlock all the wonders of the internet: watching cat videos, viewing nifty Flash sites and playing Flash video games. For a great out-of-the-box experience, it was important to pre-install Flash on all our systems --- until now. #farewell  
Read our blog to find out why we're no longer pre-installing Flash on our systems. We also provide tips on how to return to Flash if you still need it. http://blog.system76.com/post/124110683268/farewell-flash

I definitely agree with +Linus Torvalds​
Over the past several months, many of the world’s most famous scientists and engineers — including Stephen Hawking — have said that one of the biggest threats to humanity is an artificial superintelligence. But Linus Torvalds, the irascible creator of open source operating system Linux, says their fears are idiotic.
