The Abuse of Utility Creational Methods | Javalobby

The Abuse of Utility Creational Methods | Javalobby
Here’s a quote from Martin Fowler’s Refactoring book: “Any fool can write code that a computer can understand. Good programmers write code that humans can understand.” I’m not saying that I’m a good (nor bad) programmer. All I am saying is that this phrase is in my mind whenever I write code. So, when I write code, I think about the person who will replace me some time in the future. A person that will probably be unfortunate to debug my code without me around to explain to him what’s going on.
