Rather than just speak about SOLID, this talk takes an existing Slack integration and walks through refactoring it to work with Twilio. Along the way, I touch on why each aspect of SOLID makes refactoring the example easier.
SOLID principles make software more flexible and maintainable.
In this talk, I touch on each of the principles:
- Single responsibility principle
- Open/closed principle
- Liskov substitution principle
- Interface segregation principle
- Dependency inversion principle
However, rather than talk about them in the abstract, the talk focuses on a specific code example. The example starts out as a Slack integration that shows a random “Magic the Gathering” card in a channel when a certain command is issued. I refactor the code to integrate with Twilio and demonstrate each principle along the way.
The example is written as a Spring Boot application and all source is available on Github.
This talk requires a display viewable by the attendees as well as an Internet connection.
Last year, I gave a talk at the KCJUG on securing microservices with JWT. I’d love the opportunity to come back and talk again!
