My thoughts on “Head First Design Patterns”
Many software projects fail because of their programmers having the “just produce the code” mentality. Indeed, the motivation of design patterns is to give programmers a suite of techniques to isolate areas of changes, so that changes become less painful when a bug occurs or when customers demand more functionality out of the software. Personally, before picking up this book, I had learnt design patterns through goggling and piecing up different fragments of knowledge. However, I feel that I need more assurance in order to pioneer the development of a software project.
