AntiPatterns: Refactoring Software, Architectures, and Projects in Crisis

Maybe you refzctoring avoid becoming a statistic for Edition Two. The authors have discovered and named common problem situations resulting from poor management or architecture control, mistakes which most experienced practitioners archigectures recognize.

We set out here to provide as complete a picture as we can about just what an AntiPattern is, why it’s important and what we can and should be doing about them. You encounter models, principles, theory, an anecdote or two along the way.

One final complaint, and then I’m done. It would be a mistake, however, to conclude that this book was a high-minded spoof of the Patterns movement. Refactoring Software, Architectures, and Projects in Crisis.

Would you like to change to the site? AntiPatterns introduce a feature not found in plain old patterns: That’s an astonishing number, until you figure out that “failure” can also include going over budget or missing a scheduled completion date. If you sense that the project you’re on is headed for the sewer, this book will help you articulate what’s wrong xntipatterns your project manager.

Just look at the statistics: It is something that opposes the ill effects of the AntiPattern, either by prevention or as an antidote. The authors then show you how to detect and defuse AntiPatterns as well refadtoring supply refactored solutions for each AntiPattern presented.

In these cases, the “refactored solutions” offered are rachitectures preventive, and in fact may have nothing to do with any kind of refactoring as we know it. Some of the AntiPatterns described in this book clearly have no solutions, once you’re in the thick of them, beyond starting over.

So the first four chapters of this book focus on the nature of patterns, of AntiPatterns, and how they relate to software development. Those patterns describe interactions of software components.

I always groan inwardly when some new vulgarism makes its way into the language. Until I read this book, I thought gaudy concatenations like “AntiPattern” were safely confined to press releases and source code.

Some Words about Words I like this book, but I don’t like its potentially corrosive effect on the English language. AntiPatterns is projexts map.

I feel duty-bound to tell you to “eat your peas” – you probably shouldn’t skip these chapters. We’re looking forward to your feedback! Templates for Patterns and AntiPatterns.

It’s been a long time since we made any updates to this site, and the original five AntiPatterns authors have long since gone our separate ways, although we do try to keep in touch as best as possible. This book helps you navigate through today’s dangerous software development projects.

Like patterns, AntiPatterns have associated “forces,” and consequences. AntiPatterns are not exact opposites of the design patterns popularized by Gamma et al [1]. You know you’re in a Lava Flow pattern if you keep finding old code that doesn’t seem to be used anymore, and yet you’re reluctant to delete it, because – well, who knows what might break?

The high-level AntiPatterns on software architecture are a particularly valuable contribution to software engineering. Now we must all deal with four forms of compound words antipattern, anti-pattern, anti pattern, AntiPattern. You are currently using the site but have requested a page in the site. They are typically “implemented” without full awareness of project participants, and they tend to manifest over a period of time, like a slowly growing cancer.

However, he hates to work, which is why he is an editor. I resonated with one insight after another, having witnessed too many wayward projects myself.
