Design Patterns For Dummies takes design patterns and puts them in the fun and easy Dummies reference format. Unique to this book will be an emphasis on real-world examples that are direct and to the point, without extra complexity. The reader will be able to grasp how each pattern helps, and where to use it. The book will bring design patterns to the great majority of programmers that still struggle with them. Here, patterns will appear as natural solutions to natural problems, making them seem effortless.

Design Patterns For Dummies will cover all 23 GOF (“gang of four”, after the original four authors of the original Design Patterns book by Erich Gamma, Richard Helm, Ralph Johnson, John Vlissides) design patterns: Abstract Factory, Adapter, Bridge, Builder, Chain of Responsibility, Command, Composite, Decorator, Facade, Factory Method, Flyweight, Interpreter, Iterator ,Mediator, Memento ,Observer, Prototype, Proxy, Singleton, State, Strategy, Template Method, Visitor

New patterns that have emerged since the original book was first published (such as the Object-Pool pattern) will also be covered.  (, from the publisher)
