One of the problems with a lot of the resources out there is that they are either too high level or to advanced. I think there is a large void in best-practices or mid-level tutorials and articles. Everybody wants to write about complex or advanced topics that will wow the community and have others lauding over their knowledge (who wouldn't).
In addition to writing about the many things I have planned my goal is to put out at least two posts a month covering topics like:
- Object composition: writing useful, well constructed objects and minimizing an objects API
- Writing maintainable code by looking at an object's functions and properties and a quick look into refactoring to make messy code more readable
- A deeper dive into MVC and what "separation of concerns" really means also some guidelines to where objects should live in the MVC pattern.
- Loosely coupling objects and why its a good thing along with a brief overview of dependency injection.
- What in the world are interfaces and why you should implement them and use them for a functions return type and parameter types?
- Some best practices when writing ColdFusion
