In this post, I’m going to focus on why singletons are “bad”, because for me it means acknowledging one of the two main perspectives–that they are the best thing since cat videos met The Internet or they are the worst thing since Justin Bieber.

I graduated from the University of Waterloo for Computer Engineering and I'm fortunate enough to work as a Team Lead of Software Engineering at Magnet Forensics. As a team lead, I'm often looking to encourage better coding standards, creative approaches to problem solving, and ensure that good clean code makes it into the code base. I want my team to produce top-notch code, but I want to make sure that we're all learning to become better developers along the way.
