When learning to program, most of…your applications will start out relatively simply.…In the case of C# applications, you might just simply have…the main function within the program class and that'll be it.…But as you start to progress into more complex applications, you're going to…want to take a look at how you can perform a divide and conquer functionality.…As you start creating more complex applications, that…complexity can start to be very difficult to…maintain and think about and ensure that your…application will work the way you expect it to.…
As a result, what you'll want to do is start thinking about…how you can break up the application into discrete pieces of functionality.…Not only is it important to break it up from the…perspective of reducing the complexity in your mind as you create it.…But once the application has been developed and you're starting…to test it, if you have large monolithic pieces of functionality…in one method or within one function, it's going to become…extremely difficult to debug any errors or problems with that application.…
