TitlePatterns in practice
PublisherUniversity Video Communications
DescriptionFrom University Video Communications' catalog:
"Object-oriented systems often exhibit idiomatic and recurrent patterns and structures of communicating objects that solve particular design problems and make these systems more flexible, elegant and ultimately reusable. Design patterns have been proposed as one way to record and reuse the knowledge behind these recurring design structures and associated best practices. In this talk, Richard Helm focuses on how design patterns have simplified the process of performing design, describing design, and helping a team gain a common understanding and vocabulary. He also reports on the difficulties faced, especially in taming enthusiasm, and in merging and reconciling a pattern-based approach with an approach based on traditional object-oriented methodologies."
