Them's the Rules: Using a Rules Engine to Wrangle Complexity

Micah Breedlove from Franklin American Mortgage Company joins us this month to talk to us to about rules engines and how they can help wrangle complexity in your application:

With ever-growing software occasionally developers will find themselves amid a befuddlement built on complicated and poorly organized conditional logic. Chaos such as this is nearly unmaintainable, even by the original developer. A rules engine allows you to simplify that logic and provide more self-documenting, maintainable code.
