Minimalism in programming

Minimalism is the new dope in the real world.

Here is the few minimalist approach you can follow in the world of programming.

DRY – don’t repeat yourself

Every piece of knowledge must have a single, unambiguous, authoritative representation within a system.

KISS – Keep it simple, stupid

The simplest explanation tends to be the right one.

Yagni – You Aren’t Gonna Need It

The art of saying No. Don’t build everything customer/manager ask. Think more than twice and analyse before building a feature & importance of its existence.

Break the number of lines

Break the number of lines in coding when it exceeds N number of characters (mostly to fit in small or medium size screens).

Use access specifiers

Use access specifiers public or private whenever applicable – to avoid unnecessary flow of data here and there.

Naming Conventions

Do proper naming for class, method or variables. Prepare standard naming conventions which suits you.

Version Control System

Choose the right version control if you are doing collaborative work.

Don’t comment the unused code

Don’t comment out any code for future reference – just delete it – if have version control, you can get at any point of time. Or tag the commit for quick access.

Make Abstraction

Reuse the component if possible. Don’t copy paste the entire method just to change one section of the code. Think how you can handle it.
