Runline 2.0

https://github.com/LouisaBarrett/runline-2

This was a project in refactoring. As part of a two person team, we challenged ourselves to implement object oriented programming and single responsibility principles to extremes and dive deeply into OOP concepts. We focused on taking small steps, keeping our test suite running green, and creating a variety of service objects that adhere to SRP.

What to look for
Test coverage
Objects with clearly defined responsibilities
Object Oriented Programming principles
