Thoughts

Thomas The Tank Engine style coding

If you’ve developed software using MVC┬ábefore then you’ll know the importance of keeping your controllers thin (there are many blog posts by other people on this subject, google it).

I think we should therefore add a new term to our already rich nomenclature in reference to the code smell for fat controllers.

 

**EDIT**:

Although the new thomas has a thin controller so maybe we can use OldThomas and NewThomas?
