Hello ATL ALT.NET programmers,

Great discussion last time about Domain-Driven-Design. This time, let's come prepared to discuss the "SOLID" principles.

Spolsky vs. Uncle Bob:

SOLID Summary
Stated briefly, from Bob Martin:

"The first five principles are principles of class design. They are:

SRP: The Single Responsibility Principle = A class should have one, and only one, reason to change.

OCP: The Open Closed Principle = You should be able to extend a class's behavior, without modifying it.

LSP: The Liskov Substitution Principle = Derived classes must be substitutable for their base classes.

ISP: The Interface Segregation Principle = Make fine grained interfaces that are client specific.

DIP: The Dependency Inversion Principle = Depend on abstractions, not on concretions."

Our group has grown larger, and it makes it easier for the waitstaff to serve us and others in the bar if we can run a single tab per-table. You can still split it up with your table-maters and pay with an individual credit-card at the end.

This may seem like an inconvenience for some, but considering that Manuel's has always been great to us and they do not charge us at all for hosting the event in the room, I appreciate everyone's cooperation in this.
