It is the outcome of hundreds of small but critical decisions programmers make every single day. Now, software innovator Kent Beck focuses on these critical decisions, unearthing "implementation patterns" for writing programs that are simpler, clearer, better organized, and more cost effective." "Beck collects 77 patterns for handling everyday programming tasks and writing more readable code. This new collection of patterns addresses many aspects of development, including class, state, behavior, method, collections, frameworks, and more. He uses diagrams, stories, examples, and essays to engage the reader as he illuminates the patterns. You'll find solutions for handling everything from naming variables to checking exceptions." "Implementation Patterns will help programmers at all experience levels, especially those who have benefited from software patterns or agile methods. It will also be a resource for development teams seeking to work together more efficiently and build more maintainable software."--Jacket.
