IM 115: Encapsulation and Bus Counts

February 17, 2013 17:37:19.583

Welcome to episode 115 of Independent Misinterpretations - a Smalltalk and dynamic language oriented podcast with James Robertson and David Buck.

This week Dave and I talked about two things - encapsulation (and what kinds of things break it), and the "bus count" problem on projects. That latter one relates to the fact that on any long term project, a small number of people tend to accumulate critical knowledge about the project - and if they leave for any reason, things can slide downhill quickly.
