The Over Designer – Michael’s Coding Spot
The Over Designer Have you ever encountered an over designer? An over designer is a software developer that had some life changing event and became obsessed about architecture. The result being, obsessive decoupling, endless coding of Factories, creating deep (also needless) inheritence hierarchies and various use of design patterns for no good reason.

The Shell Introduction I Wish I Had – DEV Community

So I’m writing to you, my past coding self, to get you up to speed on something important: The Shell. The future me is (moderately) wiser and wants to help.

C# Extensibility: plugin functionality can be implemented in a separate C# project and/or PHP plugins may use .NET libraries.

I’ve found that it leads to more maintainable applications since it emphasizes separation of concerns throughout the system. I must set the context for the use of this architecture before proceeding.
