Welcome to my blog. I am Rudi Breedenraedt, software architect living in Belgium. Early eighties I started developing on a Sinclair home computer using Basic and Z80 assembler. In the next decennia I’ve played with different environments and languages: QuickBasic and Visual Basic, object oriented Turbo Pascal, C and C++, assembler, Smalltalk, Java,… Nowadays I lead .NET software development projects as a technical architect at RealDolmen.
Codetuning.net is about code tuning in .NET: writing quality code in an object oriented language. I hope you will find this blog to be a valuable source for better coding techniques, design patterns, tricks and solutions.
My experience has led me to believe that quality software is readable and maintainable yet powerful. A good design should be simple, intuitive, and focussed on responsibility distribution. Design patterns should be applied because they fit the needs, not because they exist.
"Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away."
