Those who’ve read my earlier post on the above topic, know that it was a second hand experience.

However, after finishing my last project at Pitney Bowes, I now have first hand experience of how sweet your code becomes when you follow principles like IoC, AOP, Transaction Management (using attributes and AOP). Also this is the first time, I’ve used interfaces so heavily.

Have a lookat this DPPConnector presentation and decide for yourself if this code is sweet or not.

The bee, of course, flies anyway.

(Taken from the animation movie – “Bee Movie“, go watch it.)
