Often when we discuss a programming decision, we talk about our feelings or opinions. Wouldn't it be better if instead we had a series of rules and laws for software design, and we could base our discussions and decisions on those?
Well, there are laws of software design, they can be known, and you can know them. Based on extensive research and broad experience, this concise guide boils down software to its true fundamentals--simple principles that any programmer or technical manager can apply to guide the way towards sustainable, well-designed systems.
This isn't a book that will tell you what to do with your software. Rather, it's a guide that will help you understand how to think about design choices and make the right decision for your situation.
