One of the challenges we face with coding is dealing with coupling. Coupling is an important aspect of programming, it tells us how much our code is tangled. When coupling is too high, we can’t easily re-use code. When the coupling is too low it does little. You can measure coupling, there are several metrics for it even (for instance “Coupling between Objects, CBO”). In this blog post I’d like to talk about a subtle introduction of coupling: when you introduce a factory method. Consider you have an interesting piece of code, and this piece… Read Article →
