Rank #14: Back to Basics – Encapsulation for Object Oriented Programming

Podcast cover
Read more
It's time to get back to basics. It's easy as a software developer to be working on the latest and greatest frameworks, using the best methodologies, trying out new things. Sometimes it's a good idea to get a refresher on the very basic fundamentals. In this episode we go over the access modifiers that are common in C# and Java as well as ways to emulate these types of behaviors in Javascript. And let's be honest - encapsulation is only effective if you're providing programmers that come after you with a roadmap of how things should work. For that reason we also discuss Command Query Separation and some other ideas and practices that are a part of good programming practices. Be sure to head over to www.CodingBlocks.net/review and leave us a review on your favorite podcasting platform!
