Refactoring: split loop + loop/map equivalence

Feb 6, 2019 - 2 minute read - Comments - refactoringsplit-loopsplit-loop-refactoringloop-map-equivalencecodekotlinmultiparadigmfunctional-programmingfpobject-oriented-programmingobject-orientedoooop

We can combine the “Split loop” refactoring technique plus the “Loop / Map equivalence” when refactoring.

Given that it does not matter in which order we apply these operations, we can say that they have the associative property

Chart of the operations

Take the case of a loop doing two things. From there:

  • we can replace the loop for a map (including the two actions into a single map body)
  • we can split the loop into two loops

Take the case of two loops, doing one thing each. From there:

  • we can replace a loop for a map
  • we can replace both loops for maps

Take a map doing two things. From there:

  • we can split the map, into two maps, doing one thing each.

(We’re not specifying the inverse operations)

State diagram of the operations

Example

We want to print all substrings of a given string:

(State1: This uses a single loop, performing two actions)

fun printAllSubstrings(string: String){
  for (i in 0.rangeTo(string.length)) {
    val substring = string.substring(i)
    println(substring)
  }
}

From State1, we replace the loop for a map:

(State2: This uses a map, with two operations)

fun printAllSubstrings(string: String) {
    0.rangeTo(string.length).map {
        val substring = string.substring(it)
        println(substring)
    }
}

From State1, Refactor to split the loop:

(State3: This uses two loops, performing one action each)

fun printAllSubstrings(string: String){
  val substrings = mutableListOf<String>()
  for (i in 0.rangeTo(string.length)) {
    val substring = string.substring(i)
    substrings.add(substring)
  }
  for (substring in substrings) {
    println(substring)
  }
}

Collapse the first loop into a map:

(This uses a map and a loop)

fun printAllSubstrings(string: String) {
  for (substring in 0.rangeTo(string.length)
                     .map { string.substring(it) }) {
    println(substring)
  }
}

Extract the method to give it a name:

(This uses a map, a loop, and a method to explain the logic)

fun printAllSubstrings(string: String) {
  for (substring in allSubstrings(string)) {
    println(substring)
  }
}

private fun allSubstrings(string: String) = 
  0.rangeTo(string.length)
    .map { string.substring(it) }

Alternatively, use the method, with a map:

(This uses an explaining method, with a map)

fun printAllSubstrings(string: String) {
  allSubstrings(string)
    .map { println(it) }
}

private fun allSubstrings(string: String) = 
  0.rangeTo(string.length)
    .map { string.substring(it) }

Alternatively, from State3, we can also replace the loop for two maps:

(State4: This uses two maps)

fun printAllSubstrings(string: String){
  0.rangeTo(string.length)
    .map { string.substring(it) }
    .map { println(it) }
}

No todo el mundo sabe o debe dar feedback

The author explains why some feedback is dangerous: either the way of giving it, or the message, or both.

In this case, she’s talking about the Commit Conf, but this is applicable to any situation

Para dar un buen feedback es importante:

  • Primero: agradecer el esfuerzo por la charla.
  • Segundo: resaltar algo positivo de ella. Seguro que algo cumple.
  • Tercero: decir cómo mejorarías un aspecto
  • Último: volver a dar las gracias o decir una frase buena que motive.

Dar un mal feedback es muy fácil:

  • Primero: no leerte la descripción ni el nivel de la charla
  • Segundo: te cabreas porque no es lo esperado y dudabas entre esa y otra charla
  • Tercero: dices lo que no te ha gustado sin rodeos.
  • Cuarto: además asumes cosas que no ha hecho y las escribes. Igual que yo he hecho en el Primero y Segundo.
  • Quinto: si además dices algo faltoso gana puntos.
  • Sexto: Utilizas esa tónica destructiva en todos.

Makefiles como dejar de memorizar comandos en docker – Developer Vago

I’ve discovered a new technique for Makefiles:\n\nUsing a common format (a DSL, in fact) to document the goal, then a new goal ‘help’ to print that documentation.

.PHONY: help
help: ## Print this help.
  @grep -E '^[a-zA-Z_-]+:.*?## .*$$' $(MAKEFILE_LIST) | awk 'BEGIN {FS = \":.*?## \"}; {printf \"\033[36m%-20s\033[0m %s\n\", $$1, $$2}'

when you run make help, then

Print this help.

Work cycles

I’ve read this Work Cycle framework to be more productive with your daily routine.\nSuggests an alternative to Pomodoro technique, in which you are to write down the contents of the goal, then split in small chunks (periods) of time to complete the individual tasks, then debrief at the end of the period and at the end of the cycle.\nAn analogy could be a double-loop Pomodoro technique for tasks.

Como ganar amigos e influir sobre las personas; Carnegie (+)

I’ve re-read this classic book (How to win friends and influence people), by Carnegie.

Explains a few tricks on communication and leadership, such as:

  • >The most important name to somebody is their own

Oliver Twist; Dickens

I’ve read this classic novel by Dickens, to try to understand the character of Oliver Twist, his adventures and misadventures.

I was interested in grokking how it compares to ‘El Lazarillo de Tormes’, a previous Spanish novel.

Building evolutionary architecture; Ford, Parsons

I’ve read this book on software architecture. On how a previous definition of architecture (‘Architecture is what needs to be defined upfront and/or is difficult to change’) is no longer valid and we should strive to approach ‘evolutionary architecture’, where -ilities (features) of the system are easier to change, where architecture changes to accommodate business requirements and where systems are designed with -ilities (features) in mind.

Selfie: How We Became So Self-Obsessed and What It’s Doing To Us; Storr

I’ve just read the chapter 1: The dying self

I’ve read this chapter relating the perfectionism with suicide.

Explains many stories of attempted or committed suicides, giving some insight into them and trying to define a pattern

I got interested in it by reading this article: Improving Ourselves to Death (from newyorker.com)

Sota la cistella; Gasol

I’ve read this book by pau Gasol on his experiences playing basketball professionally, with regards to leadership, motivation, career management, etc

One takeaway is ‘the important thing is not to reach there, but to stay there’.

He explains part of his professional successes, and failures as well. How some failures allowed him to progress further in his career, how he reached levels that he only dreamed in the past, how important it is to have a goal and work towards it.

The Reason Many Ultrarich People Aren’t Satisfied With Their Wealth

How the rich are motivated to earn more money\n>really rich people are often motivated to acquire more money by the thrill that comes with multiplying one’s fortune by making investments, buying up businesses\n>Those two ways of putting money to use—as a way of covering expenses or as a way of building a bigger fortune—\n>Every billionaire I’ve spoken to, and I’ve spoken to quite a number of them, is extremely excited by each additional increment of money they make\n> Do I have enough to buy this expensive thing I want? but rather Do I have as much or more than these people I’m comparing myself with?\n\n\n>feeling wealthy is about comparison with others in your reference group. So the question is not what individuals want to buy, but what they feel they must buy in order to keep up their status
