QuestionCode Survey PinmemberSuper Lloyd22-Jul-14 15:49 
It seems to me that it is "enterprisey" to write layer of abstract code.
In fact I am often criticized as "not liking layers"
So first I'd like to say what I thing about architecture then ask my question
A crux of contention is:
I would argue writing layered code is not an end of its own (at least not reasonably).
I would argue an end of its own is (simple maintainable code, i.e.) probably be these few properties:
- modular (people can work on their bit independently)
- dependencies flow down (top level use low level, low level do NOT use top level)
- simplest / unobtrusive as possible shell / architecture to glue stuff together
this *might be* layered / interfaced too but this is not the purpose...

What I often see and I wonder how prevalent and wonder how common it is
Layered / interfaced as hell code which takes weeks to understand to solve problem as simple as adding 1 + 2.
Is that a common pattern? I suspect it is! OMG | :OMG: Unsure | :~
My programming get away... The Blog...
