Why you must tame complexity to become a better programmer
Have you ever worked on a system that was just impossible to maintain?

You spend hours trawling through the code until you finally think you understand what’s going on but when you make your change things fall apart. You introduce ten new bugs in places you thought had nothing to do with the code you changed.

You wade through line after line of code only to discover the method you are trying to understand isn’t being called anymore. It’s dead weight dragging the codebase down.

It feels like you’re seeing double, there are multiple pieces of code that seem to do almost the same thing but not quite. They are 90% the same with a few minor differences.

You are not alone.

This scenario is more the norm than an exception. Luckily there is an explanation and a way to avoid having your code end up in the same situation:

So my first app ever is 90% finished, functionality-wise. The new challenge is to prettify it with some nice styles and UI/UX stuff...
My project turning out to be bigger than I thought it would be.

On me to-read list
 
Book : High Performance Android Apps
Really looking forward to this upcoming book by +Doug Sillars   . I've had a chance to get a sneak peak at the internals, and it's going to be a great reference for the novice and professional perf programmer alike.
