you already understand the C# programming language and have some
introduction to Patterns under your belt, this book will be very
exciting to you as it opens up the field to completely new
possibilities. ...." Peter Bromberg 25 Jan
I have been trying for some
time to get my head around design patterns
and searching for good C# implementations. Now my search is over ...

Judith has finally done the fantastic job for
communities ... There are plenty good books in the market for Design
for .NET implementation. However, they are mostly of syntactical
polymorphisms without leveraging the actual technologies or platform
such as .NET or C#. They are either inherently or smartly transcended
implementation of Java or C++ lingo. Priyo, 11 February 2008, read mor
This is a good rehash of the Gang of Four
patterns, reworked in C# 3.0.
The articles are nicely done, there are a good set of exercises
about each pattern, and there are some good comparisons between similar
patterns. James Holmes, 7 Feb 2008, read
I found this book to be a very good treatment
of the GOF patterns. The
content is well organized and has a very clean feel to it.
I think the author does a great job at communicating the intention
of the patterns. She makes good use of graphics and UML diagrams.

classic patterns are followed and used correctly you will produce more
efficient, cleaner, BETTER code, I guarantee it!!

patterns have value to you as a programmer, and you want to move your
programming expertise into the future, then this book is for you.

I like the book, I feel the layout and
presentation of each
pattern is well done, concise, yet you can grasp the main point of each
pattern. Each pattern is explained, implemented, further examples are
given, uses are explained and then each pattern is wrapped up with a
series of exercises. ... The exercises are varied, some are excellent
and they really force
you think about what the pattern is about and sink your teeth into the
details. Shafik Yaghmour 31 March 2008 read
