Entering the Zone of Pain

Entering the Zone of Pain

http://ift.tt/2pBxYR5

Years ago, when I first downloaded a trial of NDepend, I chuckled when I saw the “Abstractness vs. Instability” graph. The concept itself does not amuse, obviously. Rather, the labels for the corners of the graph provide the levity: “zone of uselessness” and “zone of pain.”

When you run NDepend analysis and reporting on your codebase, it generates this graph. You can then see whether or not each of your assemblies falls within one of these two dubious zones. No doubt people with NDepend experience can recall seeing a particularly hairy assembly depicted in the zone of pain and thinking, “I knew it!”
