All well structured object oriented architectures are full of patterns. Indeed, one of the ways that I measure the quality of an object oriented system is to judge whether or not its developers have paid careful attention to the common collaborations among its objects.”

― Grady Booch, Design Patterns: Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software

Developers must design clean, clearly designed code to avoid bug creep into the system, and avoid complexity. Designing a system is not easy.

However, it is not required to solve all problems “from scratch”. It is preferable to learn from and deploy the lessons from the captured experiences of other designers.

Design Patterns are reusable solutions to common problems in software system design.

In this article, we explore some Design Patterns in different contexts.
