    When people ask for “reliability,” ask them to list the failures they want to handle.
  • Mathias shared from Implementing Domain-Driven Design by Vaughn Vernon
    Just about every framework on the market today requires, and therefore promotes, the use of public properties on simple objects. Most developers can’t help but be influenced by all the anemic classes all over their enterprises. Admit it. You’ve been bitten by it, haven’t you? As a result, we have a situation that might be best labeled anemia everywhere.
    Note: Anemia everywhere.
  • Mathias shared from Streamlined Object Modeling: Patterns, Rules, and Implementation by Jill Nicola, Mark Mayfield, Mike Abney
    A successful company knows how to rapidly adapt the data, rules, and processes driving its business as soon as market conditions change; however, these rapid changes are futile if the company’s computerized systems are not similarly adept at quickly altering their data, rules, and processes. Keeping computerized systems in sync with the business is easier to accomplish when the two share a common underlying model.
