SOLID Principles

The broad goal of the SOLID principles is to reduce dependencies so that engineers change one area of software without impacting others. Furthermore, they are intended to make designs easier to understand, maintain and extend.


Ultimately, using these design principles makes it easier for software engineers to avoid issues and to build adaptive, effective, and agile software.

While the principles come with many benefits, following the principles generally leads to writing longer and more complex code. This means that it can extend the design process and make development a little more difficult. However, this extra time and effort are well worth it because it makes software so much easier to maintain, test, and extend.

The principles have become popular because when followed correctly, they lead to better code for readability, maintainability, design patterns, and testability. In the current environment, all developers should know and utilize these principles.
