PSA for white people interacting with PoC: you can appreciate the positive traits of PoC without framing them in relation to their race. Please do that, thanks.

Learned from Sandi Metz, and the specific arrangement of letters from a former coworker;

HECL (pronounced like heckle) - A better version of SOLID

Highly Cohesive - An object's lifecycle, responsibilities, and API should all fit well together and make practical sense

Easily Composable - A complex organization of objects should be easily made from smaller, independent objects

Context Independent - An object should not be overly specialized and capable of being used in multiple contexts

Loosely Coupled - When an object depends on another, it should "know" as little as possible about the dependency, and ideally the dependency should be injected as an initializing attribute

I just finished listening to Adam Savage's Every Tool's a Hammer: Life is what you make it and it's incredible. It confirmed for me that I am a maker despite being only a programmer. It's made me think about the tools I use, the processes I'm drawn towards and why, and just about how much fulfilling life is when you make things, even "inconsequential" things. If you are a maker, and dollars to donuts you are, I cannot recommend Adam's book enough. He's not just the thinking maker's maker, he's the ADD thinking maker's maker. The last few words of the book should convince you if nothing else.

It's ok from time to time to abandon your best laid plans and just get out[...]In the world of making, there's space for that; there's space for all of us.
