53. Clean Code – Integrating with Third Party Libraries the Right Way
In this episode we talk about how to insulate your application at it's boundaries? What in the world does that even mean?! We're not talking about those boundaries where others aren't allowed to touch your keyboard (although that's a real thing). No, we're talking about making sure you make your code easier to maintain over time by coding to interfaces or wrappers for third party libraries or external APIs. Come join us on another deep dive into Clean Code, and our (polluted) thoughts on the topic.
