Tapas code: A gastronomical analogy for modern software development.

In programming, we often use the term spaghetti code. It's a derogatory term that explains the state of a codebase as being very coupled and entangled. Most computer science students get deja vu when they hear the expression loose coupling high cohesion. It's a philosophy that code submodules and components should be independent of each other, which creates a more dynamic software system where modules are easily replaceable.

This concept is important, especially when working with external clients. All software projects will inevitably be subdued to change as time progresses, and we learn more about how we interact with a system. Writing Spaghetti Code means not being adaptable when coding leads to bugs and inflexibility.

At Relu Solutions, we want to stay in the gastronomical department and introduce a more positive term for the way we create software. "Tapas Code"; like the traditional Spanish dish, we aim to create modules and components independent of each other. This way, customers are more engaged in the development process. The result is higher customer satisfaction and an adaptable workflow that benefits all parties.

So next time you design your software architecture, replace your carb-heavy pasta dish with light and delicious submodules.

Bon Appetit
