A Managers’ Guide to Design Patterns

Twenty-five years ago software industry guru Erich Gamma and his colleagues introduced Design Patterns–a set of general solutions to common object-oriented design problems that grew out of the world of architecture and urban design. While some have argued that these design patterns are mere hacks to cover up for deficiencies in programming languages, patterns have nevertheless only grown in popularity and are in widespread use today. In this session we will cut the chaff to understand patterns and put them in context.

You can expect to learn:

  • Where patterns came from what their role is in object-oriented development,
  • How patterns work and their relation to standard object-oriented design,
  • The role of Design Principles (not to be confused with Design Patterns),
  • Best practices for using patterns, including how patterns can help turbo-charge your development teams.
