Software Minimalism


Sunday, May 9, 2010

Thanks to Matt Taylor sending me email comments about my Avoiding FizzBuzz post, I decided to jazz it up a bit.

This whole blog is dedicated to avoiding FizzBuzz type questions in general, so I figure the more code posts the better.

Using my IEnumerable Each extension method, I tried out this version of FizzBuzz:

Action<int> printnum = num =>
    var value = num % 15 == 0 ? "FizzBuzz"
              : num % 5 == 0 ? "Buzz"
              : num % 3 == 0 ? "Fizz"
              : num.ToString();


Enumerable.Range(1, 100).Each(printnum);

Notice I’m still trying to decompose statements into rough single responsibility. I’m still going for readability/maintainability over trying to minimize statement count. At the same time, I always strive to reduce typing by staying pretty DRY. It’s a balancing act.

My biggest pet peeve is people who post code do not include the using/imports required to cut/paste/run the snippet! I'm lazy!

Haha. I didn't post them because I didn't write them. Wrote it all in one file. I'm lazier!
