The Pehapkari.cz blog has posted the latest article in their "Domain-Driven Design" series of posts covering the focus on the "domain" when developing an application rather than just features. In this latest tutorial, they cover services and factories to help with the encapsulation of functionality...and why they shouldn't be used. This article is a reaction to readers' confusion about services. We'll cover a domain service and domain factory in this article and when to use them and when not to. Domain-driven design is about the domain. Domain services and domain factories do not exist in the domain. In general, we shouldn't use them. They are artificial constructions and this causes a lot of problems with code understanding, maintainability and also a divergence between the domain, the model, and the code. The article continues the use of the e-commerce example when talking about the ideas of services and factories in the domain. It provides some basic examples (flow diagrams included) and the reasoning why they should not be used and what they could be replaced with.

To make the daily work with Adobe’s pixel-editing flagship even more comfortable and easy, there are several extensions that supposedly ease the workflow. Today we want to introduce you to five of these indispensable extensions. Perfect Patterns Using “Seamless Textures” Original Image With “Tile" and “Mirror” Pattern Those who have already turned an image into a pattern know that it’s not always easy, as a pattern needs to be crafted in a way that the single tiles can not be recognized when the area filled by the pattern is viewed as a whole. The extension “Seamless Texture” helps you create perfect patterns. It will turn a square image into a pattern that meets the mentioned requirements in no time. To do that, the plugin provides two options that turn one image into a seamless pattern. The variant “Tile” copies the image into all four corners of the working space. Thanks to a radial route, transitions are created seamlessly. The second option “Mirror” shrinks the image to a quarter of its size and copies it so that it is in every quarter of […]* You might also be interested in the following articlesLayers for WordPress: Creating Themes Made EasyEasily Editable Vector Globes in Adobe IllustratorOCR on Images with Project Naptha – a Clever Chrome Extension“Retinize It” Simplifies the Creation of Retina-Ready…LightZone: Totally Free Photo Lab lets you Forget Adobe LightroomSaving Big Bucks: 200 Premium Photoshop Actions for 17 instead of 243…
