The Selfish Class

Tue, 10/04/2016 - 21:17 -- rprice

This paper takes a code’s-eye view of software reuse and evolution. A code-level artifact must be able to attract programmers in order to survive and flourish. The paper addresses the question of what an object might do to encourage programmers to (re-)use it, as opposed to using some other object, or building new ones. THE SELFISH CLASS pattern shows how focusing on code, rather than systems, processes, or personnel, can lead to fresh insights into software evolution and the forces that drive it.

Lightbot

Thu, 01/08/2015 - 17:25 -- rprice

Reminds me of the Richard Garfield game called RoboRally. Lightbot is great fun and does a surprisingly thorough job of introducing some pretty complex principles of programming. Lightbot offers an easy way for kids to learn concepts like loops, if-then statements, and the like without typing or coding.

There’s a lot of outdated information on the Web that leads new PHP users astray, propagating bad practices and insecure code. PHP: The Right Way is an easy-to-read, quick reference for PHP popular coding standards, links to authoritative tutorials around the Web and what the contributors consider to be best practices at the present time. There is no canonical way to use PHP.

Wed, 07/30/2014 - 10:34 -- rprice

Code schools are considered a key part of developing a local tech economy. Students at a code school can develop programming skills without investing in a full college education. But they aren’t necessarily cheap; The Iron Yard’s 12-week program costs $10,000.
