It’s Only Pasta - A Few Tips on Software Architecture to Avoid Spaghetti Code

By Lucian Radu Teodorescu

You go into an Italian restaurant and order spaghetti. Being of an analytic type, you start analysing the plate you received. And, of course, you can’t help of drawing analogies with Software Engineering.

Starting with the spaghetti metaphor, the talk provides 3 tips to be applied in Software Engineering. Applying them should make the code we write look less like a spaghetti code, and more like delicious pasta. These refer to overview, coherence and balance.

While the talk mostly addresses software architects and wanna-be architects, it can be useful for all software engineers.
