  • Overloading (Programming)

    Overloading (Programming)

    In programming, overloading allows methods sharing the same name to operate distinctively, depending on argument types. This technique, integral in modern software development, offers flexibility and efficiency, showcasing the dynamic nature of programming practices.

  • Encapsulation


    In object-oriented programming, encapsulation confines data and its associated functions within a class. This methodological approach enhances data security and ensures structured interactions between software components.

  • Letter Case (Programming Conventions)

    Letter Case (Programming Conventions)

    In programming, letter case conventions, such as Camel Case, Pascal Case, Snake Case, and Kebab Case, determine the capitalization patterns of identifiers. These conventions, originating from early computer science traditions, play a pivotal role in ensuring clarity and aligning with specific language design principles.

  • Composability


    Stemming from disciplines such as mathematics and engineering, composability is the practice of designing components that can be combined to create complex systems. Central to this is the emphasis on modularity and the harmonious interaction of these components.

  • Impedance Mismatch

    Impedance Mismatch

    Impedance mismatch results from the disparity between object-oriented systems and relational databases in data representation and access. While tools like Object-Relational Mapping seek to bridge this divide, complexities in data structures, identity, and navigation persist, evolving with technological advancements.

  • Separation of Concerns

    Separation of Concerns

    Separation of Concerns (SoC) is a design principle emphasizing distinct responsibilities within a system. Originating from Dijkstra’s work, it’s foundational in managing complexity across computer science, software engineering, and broader disciplines, promoting modularity, readability, and reusability.
