It seems pretty popular right now to bash widespread software design practices, e.g. dependency injection, frameworks, annotations, etc. While there are some downsides of adopting those practices, I believe there are more benefits.

This is the 5th post in the Starting Ethereum focus series. This post is part of a series dedicated on starting development with the Ethereum blockchain. Last week, we finally developed a contract providing some value in the form of a rough-around-the-edges voting application. Ethereum comes with no tools aimed at state-of-the-art software development out-of-the-box. Since this is a huge issue, there's third-party tooling available in the form of the Truffle framework.
