Title: Agile Code
From the Agile Manifesto: Responding to change over following a plan. From the manifesto’s 12 principles:Welcome changing requirements, even late in development and Continuous attention to technical excellence and good design enhances agility.
Code that works to enable those three statements is code that I refer to as agile code. We’ll talk about writing that kind of code by working through a simple example pulled from the book Agile Principles, Patterns, and Practices in C# by Robert Martin.
