2. Coding philosophy

  • Minimizing the footprint of changes (I know how painful is when merging code from different partners or upgrade or installing hot-fix).
  • Where to make the change (always at the highest level and in this order: class, table, form data source field/method, form control).
  • Using field groups (The reason this reduces footprint).
  • Upgrades and system maintainability.
  • Design for a service-oriented architecture.
