Blog Series: Design Decisions

Show Sidebar

I am going to write a couple of blog articles with a common pattern: some design decisions that were made years ago whose negative effects caused harm, additional effort or bad workarounds that introduced other side-effects.

The reason I write those articles is not writing a show-off or rant. It should inform and inspire programmers all over the world to think twice before a design decision is done. To be able to do better, you have to learn from other peoples mistakes.

I am going to link all articles of that series to this article, so that you have a starting point for all of them.

Side-Note: So why not introducing a new tag instead? In my opinion, a tag such as "designdecisions" does not qualify as a tag since tags should be general and not related to a series of blog articles that are finished after a couple of weeks or months. I try to limit or even reduce the number of tags used on this blog. The more tags you use, the less use you get out of it. See also my recommendations for tagging in this talk.
