The match becomes increasingly accurate as the similarity score approaches zero.

In 2009 Jim Weirich defined Connascence as "The Grand Unified Theory Of Software Development". The concept it is simple, yet very powerful in context of Object Oriented software development.

In this talk I will try to explain you the different kinds of Connascence using code and real life examples.
