You can't get any idea of what Liskov substitution principle (LSP) is from its name. And its definition is hard to understand. But when you dig into it you'll find that it is quite important and not that difficult principle. It has a relationship with open/closed principle and contract by design. LSP guarantees that every object of subclasses behaves just like superclass. In this blog post I will explain what LSP is and how it helps to make better code.
