My parents were always apt to say “you learn something new each day”. For the most part they’ve been right from the little things (turn the door knob before trying to go through the door) to the big things (when a sign says “Do not feed the bears,” man, you better not feed the bears).
Today’s new thing was stumbling on the paper Archetypes, Color, and the Domain-Neutral Component. As I’ve often said: when you sit down to solve a differential equation you don’t just try to figure it out, you use the set of known patterns to guide you to a solution. I believe that the same is true with software architecture and development.
Here are some complimentary links on color modeling and the DNC:
