Speaker: Uwe Schmitz
Topic: Introducing SOLID Object-Oriented Design Principles and Microsoft Unity

SOLID is an acronym for
  • Single Responsibility Principle,
  • Open/Closed Principle,
  • Liskov Substitution Principle,
  • Interface Segregation Principle, and
  • Dependency Inversion Principle.

In this session, we’ll introduce SOLID principles which help developers to
  • simplify the implementation,
  • minimize the impact of change, and
  • facilitate testing 

by emphasizing high cohesion and low coupling using techniques centered around abstraction, inheritance and polymorphism. In addition, we’ll introduce the Microsoft Unity Application Block, a lightweight, extensible dependency injection container for applying the Dependency Inversion Principle.
