Robert C. Martin. Clean code philosophy changed everything.

    I hope you didn't take all that stuff literally though. There's some pretty fanatic shit in that book, so add a good dose of common sense and just take away the general ideas.

    @devdiddydog not related to Uncle Bob but you reminded me of those fanatics I worked with, who took "program to an interface, not a concrete implementation" too literally. I guess every book or advice should be taken skeptically.

    You can fuck everything up by overdoing it. Even breathing. See hyperventilation.

    But in my experience, overdoing SOLID does at least not lead to the atrocities I see so often.

    @Xamenyap: EDIT: NOW I got what you meant - after I posted my reply. For historic reasons this is what I initially wrote: didn't follow you on that one. I am the opposite of fanatic, and simply pointed out that those who claim Clean Code is a bible should be a bit careful.

    @TheCommoner282: exactly.
