Zenni Optical

My new sets of glasses arrived this morning ordered from? I have never ordered glasses online before but the price of glasses on the high street is just a little too high for me at the moment and essentially I only needed a spare pair. They have a massive selection of ludicrously cheap spectacles so I thought I would indulge myself, getting 3 pairs (buy 2 get 1 free) for the princely sum of ?20. That included shading and anti glare on one pair. Ridiculous. All 3 were essentially joke glasses buy I wanted to see what the quality and fit would be like.?

The quality of excellent. No different to my FCUK or Osiris glasses that I bought last time from Specsavers. All I needed was my prescription and my PD distance (they don't include this on your prescription) which I got from using this app?

Anyway, I bought a pair of slick "Potters", some miners welfare glasses and a pair of yellow tinted glasses so I could look like the dude from half life. Sadly the yellow tint wasn't quite enough but I will get a darker yellow next time and maybe some with a red tint just to look extra cool.?

Creating star ratings in HTML and Javascript

I'd searched around a little for some shortcuts to help in doing this but I couldn't find anything satisfactory that included the ability to pull the rating off again for saving. I'd ended up coming up with this rather cheeky solution. Hopefully it helps you too! This is my first post in a while (I stopped blogging properly about 8 years ago!) It's strange coming back to it. Blogger feels very crusty and old by todays standards too.

Make your objects immutable by default

More about the Good Dojo In my post last week , I discussed creating objects that are instantiated safely. Please go back and read if you are interested. At the end of the post, I mentioned that I'd also written the class so it was immutable when instantiated. This is important!!! I feel like a broken record in repeating this but I am sure at the time of writing your code, you aren't modifying your object all over the place and so are safe in the belief that protecting against mutability is overkill. Please remember though, your code could be around for a hell of a long time. You aren't writing your code for now... you are writing for the next fool that comes along (including you) . Nothing is more upsetting that coming back to fix a bug on some wonderfully crafted code to say "Who has butchered my code?!", but often you were involved at the start of the process. You made the code easy to modify, allowing objects to be used / reused / modified without thi

An instantiated object should be "ok"

I've been QA'ing quite a bit of work recently and one common theme I've noticed across both Java and C# projects I have been looking at is that we occasionally open ourselves up unessacarily to Exceptions by the way objects are being created. My general rule of thumb (which I have seen mentioned in a Pluralsight video recently but also always re-iterate in various Robust Software talks I have done) is that you shouldn't be able to create an object and then call a method or access a property that then throws an exception. At worst, it should return null (I'm not going to moan about that now). I've created an example below. We have two Dojos, one is good and one is bad. The bad dojo looks very familiar though. It's a little class written in the style that seems often encouraged. In fact, many classes start life as something like this. Then as years go on, you and other colleagues add more features to the class and it's instantiation becomes a second
