23/08/2009 1 CS 2110 Software Design Principles I Based on a slide set by Juan Altmayer Pizzorno port25.com Overview ± Today : Design Concepts & Principles ² Top-Down, Bottom-Up Design ² Software Process (briefly) ² Modularity ² Information Hiding, Encapsulation ² Principles of Least Astonishment and “DRY” ² Refactoring (if there’s time) ± Next week: Test-Driven Development Our Challenge ± For simple applications, writing code is “linear” ± You pin down the problem ² Example: “search files and list lines that contain the string SnortBlat” ± You make minor decisions, such as where the list of files will come from, and whether SnortBlat will be a constant or an input to the program ± And then you write the code ± Easy as pie! But it isn’t always so easy! ± Interesting applications are often challenging in ways that simple ones aren’t ± Data sets may be enormous ± The thing being computed may be complex ± The amount of code required to do it in the most obvious way may seem huge (and perhaps also, repetitious) A more complex example ± Garmin GPS unit tracks your bike ride … making display easy
