Design Patterns: Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software – 1/15

Design Patterns: Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software

Design Patterns – Gang of Four

Design Patterns: Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software is the first and probably the most famous book about the Design pattern. It was first published in 1995, but thankfully those design patterns are still valid nowadays, the only outdated thing in this book may be the Smalltalk programming language, used in some examples. Anyway this book is still very good and popular: in fact I have decided to read this book when, in a job listing, it was expressly requested the knowledge of design patterns and of this book!

I will write a series of 15 articles about this book, making the summary of a couple chapters of this book in each one (the book is pretty big, it has over 500 pages). To deepen your knowledge of the argument, you can always buy the book @ Amazon.
