Today is January 01, 2017. Happy and prosperous New Year!!!
As I have mentioned in prior blog entries, among many other activities, I enjoy reading technical books in order to learn, refresh and on occasions question what some may consider common knowledge.

The motivation for this entry is based on chapter 5 of the book Agile Software Development Principles, Patterns and Practices by Robert Martin. In that chapter the author writes an initial program with correct output. The issue is that it is not as simple to follow (and possibly maintain) as the final one. The final one is longer but much easier to follow.

I wanted to determine if the performance would be different (better) for the short program when compared against the longer one, which also outputs the same results. Continue reading “Prime Numbers”

The software is improved to pass new tests, only. This is opposed to software development that allows software to be added that is not proven to meet requirements.
