We'll be glad to discuss, please drop us an email.
A good design stands the test of time, but when the time comes it may be too late to find out if a design is resilient. As a good designer we want to be proactive, get a good sense of the quality of design in hand, rework parts that can benefit from improvements, and be able to reevaluate the quality of the modified design. Such an effort has to be quick and continuous, thus we not only need concepts but also need tools to measure, to facilitate such agility.
In this live class we will learn how to measure the quality of design for both functions and components implemented with classes. We will start with a discussion of things that affect and those that influence the quality of design. Though much of design is qualitative, we will look at ways and tools that help to measure and quantify design. We will practice the concepts using examples of design that live in code. We'll rework the given initial design and measure our progress.
