I cried

I almost cried for joy when I read this post on one of my favorite topics: Small Classes, Short Methods. Someone has been reading my mind. I love the set of rules. It's something that I strive for in my code. I've run into problems with other developers though (they generally think I am nuts when I wrap things like phone numbers, ids, domain specific codes, etc into objects instead of strings). But, by wrapping the primitive into an object that states it's role, you start moving logic closer to where it belongs. The books "Genius Within" and "Prefactoring" were the books that really brought this home for me (especially "Genius Within"). Lots of great advice. Go read it now!
