What Is the Anti-IF Campaign?
The goal of the Anti-IF Campaign is to raise awareness of effective use of the Object-Oriented Paradigm, first of all removing bad, dangerous IFs.
The Campaign accomplishes this by:
- Supporting free initiatives
- Holding free events
- Providing free articles and resources
- Gathering supporters
- Sharing experiences on how to improve design effectiveness
Sponsored by the Anti-IF School
In order to provide all of these amazing things and keep them free of charge, the Anti-IF Campaign relies on funding provided by the Anti-IF School, which invests part of the income it receives from its professional services business directly to the Campaign.
Why Was It Started?
The Campaign started in 2007 from Francesco Cirillo’s idea:
“Lots of teams want to be agile, but have difficulty cutting down code complexity. Let’s begin with something concrete: Knowing how to use objects in such a way that enables developers to eliminate bad IFs, those that most often compromise software’s flexibility and ability to evolve. Let’s start with these!”
