Hello everyone!

The 58th edition of “It Depends”, my weekly newsletter is out. Go get yours and share with your friends.

This week, I write about how SOLID principles are not independent guidelines but sub-parts of achieving a single thing — decoupling. We need to understand how they all support each other and form an evolutionary framework that lets us build systems that cater to increasingly sophisticated use cases without devolving into a big ball of mud.

From the internet, Codahale on the diminishing returns of increase in team size, Polly Labarre on the will to lead, and Codahale again with a USL based library to evaluate system scalability.
