This intense training experience takes a problem-solving approach to learning the 23 design patterns as noted in the book, “Design Patterns: Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software” by Erich Gamma, Richard Helm, Ralph Johnson and John Vlissides. Separated into 15 percent lecture and 85 percent hands-on labs, participants will possess a working knowledge of design patterns and their benefits upon completion of this course.

Audience: Software developers wanting to fully understand and practice the 23 design patterns as outlined in the Gang of Four book, “Design Patterns: Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software.”
