How to Reduce Code Complexity and Develop Software More Sustainably
Mark Seemann is well known for explaining complex concepts clearly and thoroughly. In this book he condenses his wide-ranging software development experience into a set of practical, pragmatic techniques for writing sustainable and human-friendly code. This book will be a must-read for every programmer.
-- Scott Wlaschin, author of Domain Modeling Made Functional Code That Fits in Your Head offers indispensable, practical advice for writing code at a sustainable pace and controlling the complexity that causes projects to spin out of control.

Reflecting decades of experience helping software teams succeed, Mark Seemann guides you from zero (no code) to a deployed feature and shows how to maintain a good cruising speed as you add functionality, address cross-cutting concerns, troubleshoot, and optimize. You'll find valuable ideas, practices, and processes for key issues ranging from checklists to teamwork, encapsulation to decomposition, API design to unit testing.

Seemann illuminates his insights with code examples drawn from a complete sample project. Written in C#, they're designed to be clear and useful to anyone who uses any object-oriented language including Java, C++, and Python. To facilitate deeper exploration, all code and extensive commit messages are available for download.

  • Choose mindsets and processes that work, and escape bad metaphors that don't
  • Use checklists to liberate yourself, improving outcomes with the skills you already have
  • Get past "analysis paralysis" by creating and deploying a vertical slice of your application
  • Counteract forces that lead to code rot and unnecessary complexity
  • Master better techniques for changing code behavior
  • Discover ways to solve code problems more quickly and effectively
  • Think more productively about performance and security

If you've ever suffered through bad projects or had to cope with unmaintainable legacy code, this guide will help you make things better next time and every time.

Mark Seemann

Mark Seemann is a Danish software developer based in Copenhagen, Denmark. His professional interests include functional programming, object-oriented development, as well as software development in general. Apart from writing two books he has also written numerous articles and blog posts about related topics.

Despite being mostly a .NET developer he takes most of his inspiration from sources across a wide range of technologies, including Haskell and lots of pattern books.

Originally poised to become a rock star or (failing that) graphic novelist (in the European tradition) he one day found himself with insufficient talent for either, a masters degree in Economics, and a desire for working with computers. He has been doing the latter intermittently since 1995.

When not working with software or spending time with his family, Mark enjoys reading, listening to and playing music, as well as preparing or consuming gourmet food and wine.
