Austin, TX, July 21, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Developers spend up to 20% of their time writing repetitive code that machines could generate more reliably. A new white paper issued by PostSharp Technologies explores the problem of duplicated source code that stems from manual implementation of patterns and proposes pattern-aware compiler extensions that add support for patterns into mainstream programming languages.
Today’s software engineers are trained to think in terms of patterns. However, conventional programming languages miss the concept of patterns so developers are forced to implement patterns by hand, spending up to 20% of their time writing repetitive code known as boilerplate. The white paper, "10 Reasons You Must Consider Pattern-Aware Programming" explores the problem of duplication in source code and suggests pattern-aware programming to eradicate boilerplate and reduce codebase by 5% to 25% with an average 19x return on investment.
The document provides insight into:
- the problem of manual implementation of patterns, resulting in boilerplate code
- the cost of boilerplate for companies
- existing technologies for pattern automation
- the key reasons to consider pattern-aware compiler extensions
CEO of PostSharp Technologies, Gael Fraiteur, commented: "We believe that companies need to understand the cost of boilerplate code and more importantly, explore the ways to decrease the repetitive code and make their developers more productive."
More than 50,000 developers and over 1,000 companies including more than 10% of Fortune 500 companies such as Microsoft, Intel, Bank of America, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Phillips, NetApp, Siemens and Oracle use pattern-aware programming to reduce their maintenance and development costs.
"We've been able to consolidate and vastly simplify our code, making it more readable and maintainable. It's allowed us to more consistently leverage code throughout the code base without having to continually rewrite the same functionality over and over again," says Mike Lawton, Manager of Software Engineering at DaProSystems Inc.
The white paper was written for CTOs, software architects and senior developers in software-driven organizations—specifically in financial, insurance, healthcare, energy and IT industries that typically write a lot of repetitive code.
