"Everybody complains about the weather but nobody does anything about it." Likewise, everyone has an opinion about good code, but those opinions don't help you create it. This book fills that gap. It explains the process of writing good code, and teaches you to achieve beautifully programmed ends by way of extremely practical means.

What It's About

99 Bottles of OOP is a practical guide to writing cost-effective, maintainable, and pleasing object-oriented code.

                  It explores:

  • Getting the best value from Test-Driven Development (TDD)
  • Doing proper refactoring, not random "rehacktoring"
  • Locating concepts buried in code
  • Finding names that convey deeper meaning
  • Safely altering code by following the "Flocking Rules"
  • Simplifying new additions with the Open/Closed Principle
  • Avoiding conditionals by obeying the Liskov Substitution Principle
  • Making targeted improvements by reducing Code Smells
  • Improving changeability with polymorphism
  • Manufacturing role-playing objects using Factories
