A One Day Seminar on

Object-Oriented Design Patterns

Course Description

Designers of object-oriented software have compiled many common arhitectural solutions to common problems, known as design patterns. A pattern captures a recurring micro-architecture described in terms of how objects interact to perform a computation. Learning these patterns helps programmers evaluate, communicate, review, and implement software designs more effectively. The patterns form a catalog of reusable architectural mechanisms (not a body of reusable source code). This course focuses primarily, though not exclusively, on patterns from Gamma et al.'s Design Patterns, (Addison-Wesley, 1995).


"Designers who are unable or unwilling to learn the basic OO design patterns simply should not be doing OO design." Marshall Cline Communications of the ACM, Oct 1996, p. 49


The course is presented as 1 day of lecture interspersed with group exercises.
