Mock objects are a good way to break apart a legacy system to test it. However, they do not improve coupling (few dependencies between units) or cohesion (each unit does one thing). Making code easy to change requires using indirections with looser coupling. In this information-dense, code-oriented session, we’ll learn key indirections and their impacts on your design. Next time, choose the right indirection for the job rather than just reaching for another mock object.
In 2000, Agile was revolutionary. In 2010, Agile is stagnant. There are two Agile worlds today: The first is pushing the same practices and processes they’ve been pushing for the last decade. The second takes many of these practices and processes for granted. Sadly, there’s little interaction between the two.
