Design Patterns

Interactive exercises were all engaging and helped reinforce concepts

Russell Carswell - Legal and General Investment Management

Design Patterns

I liked the opportunity to write some code based on the training immediately, and that the trainer was able to spot where I'd misunderstood some of the course by going around the room checking what had been written by everyone.

Danielle Litterick - Legal and General Investment Management

Design Patterns

The code examples in Cache were very useful.

Richard Gelsthorpe - Legal and General Investment Management

Duration Duration

14 hours (usually 2 days including breaks)

Requirements Requirements

Good knowledge of UML and any object-oriented language like C++, C#, Java, VB.NET, PHP 5.3 or above etc...

Overview Overview

There are plenty of tried and tested patterns widely available to everyone. Sometimes it is a matter of changing the names and implementing the pattern in a specific technology. It can saves hundreds of hours, which otherwise would be spent on design and testing.

Training Goals

This course has two goals: first, it allows you to reuse widely-known patterns, second, it allows you to create and reuse patterns specific to your organization.

It helps you to estimate how patterns can reduce costs, systematize the design process and generate a code framework based on your patterns.


Software designers, business analysts, project managers, programmers and developers as well as operational managers and software division managers.

Course Style

The course focuses on use cases and their relationship with a specific pattern. Most of the examples are explained in UML and in simple Java examples (the language can change if the course is booked as a closed course). It guides you through the sources of the patterns as well as showing you how to catalogue and describe patterns which can be reused across your organization.
