Imagine you’re building a house. You could slap some walls together, toss on a roof, and call it a day. Sure, it might stand for a while, but what happens when a storm hits? That’s where the SOLID principles come in — they’re like the architectural blueprint for your code, ensuring it’s not just sturdy, but resilient.

Think about it: would you rather have a house built on a shaky foundation, ready to collapse at the slightest breeze, or one with a solid base, capable of weathering any storm? The same goes for your code. So, in this article, we will be learning about SOLID Principles which will help you to do that. Sure, following the five SOLID principles might take a bit more time and effort upfront, but in the end, you’ll have a codebase that’s flexible, adaptable, and built to last for your grandchildren to see. So, whether you’re constructing a skyscraper or creating your application, remember: strong foundations lead to stronger structures. With that understood, let’s get into it and learn about the S in SOLID principle which stands for Single Responsibility Principle.

This article has been created in collaboration with Rivaan Ranawat.

You can use this article alone to learn the SOLID Principle or use it to read along while watching his video about the SOLID principle.
