Podcast Episode 34 – Conflicting Patterns, It Depends, and YAGNI

ConflictEpisode 34 is a little shorter than my normal solo podcasts, but it is a topic that I have been thinking about for awhile and I just wanted to get it off of my chest. Design Patterns aren’t like Duct Tape – the more you use, the better it is. In fact, they actually won’t all work together if you go in 100% on them. Today, I talk about 2 of those examples and then talk about how you should go about discovering good software design.
