Thanks for writing this. I'm an old guy and have endured every "better programming" tools, paradigms and methodologies since OOP in the early 80s. I'm still an OOP fan, btw, but like most things it has been polluted by tons of dogma. SOLID and the Gang of Four are fine academic conversations, but cause more pain that progress in production. The ONLY pattern that works is KISS.
Thanks again
