About The Project
“Stovepipe system: A barely maintainable assemblage of ill-related components” (Wikipedia)
While we all love the old industrial designs with thousands of chimney rising up in the sky, I think we can agree that this is exactly what we don’t want in software. This blog is about designing systems in a way that will avoid ending up with a big pile of smokestacks. We will explore good practices and designs through C#, TypeScript and others, and look at what can be done to improve our lives as software developers as hobbyists and professionals. I hope you will like your journey through this blog.
About The Author
I put a lot of value in TDD, BDD, and DDD, in emergent architecture and failing fast, in abstract estimation techniques and in close client interactions. In other words, I specialize in coaching a development team on how to be successful both in terms of code design and structure as well as Scrum project management and self organization.
When I am not working for my current employer, I am working on various open source projects or this blog. I stay up to date with the latest stuff through tons of blogs and social networks like reddit. If I need to get away from things, I usually go for a walk around where I live or watch some sci-fi tv shows, the latest anime, dabble in my habitual Friday D&D game, or just make awesome Coffee!
I am always up for new challenges and love to take on new projects. If there is one thing I hate, it is clinging to something for too long. When I find a better way to do something, I switch, even if it means dragging and coaching my entire team along the way.
Hopefully, you will enjoy reading this blog; this vision I have of the perfect software. And who knows, maybe we’ll get to meet one day.
