Design patterns help you solve common software problems with known, proven approaches. In this course, C# Design Patterns: Adapter, you will learn about the adapter design pattern - one of the most common and useful patterns you'll encounter. It's useful for the very common problem where you want to use a library or service provider, but its interface isn't compatible with what your current code expects. First, you will understand the problem the adapter pattern solves. Next, you will discover what software design principles apply to this pattern. Finally, you will explore how to apply this pattern and frequently used patterns. By the end of this course, you will know when and how to apply the adapter pattern in C#.

Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Steve Smith, aka ardalis, and welcome to my course, C# Design Patterns: Adapter. I'm an experienced .NET developer, architect, and trainer. My onsite workshops and Pluralsight courses have helped thousands of developers and teams write better code faster. You'll find me online under the name ardalis. Design patterns have fascinated me for years. They're like individual tools you can add to your tool kit as a software developer. They don't take long to introduce, but they can take a lot of practice to master. In this course, we are going to explore the adapter design pattern, one of my favorites for its overall usefulness. Some of the major topics that we will cover include, what problem is the adapter pattern meant to solve? What software design principles apply to this pattern? How can you apply this pattern to refactor and improve your existing code? And what other design patterns are similar to or frequently used with the adapter pattern? By the end of this course, you'll be able to recognize situations where the adapter pattern makes sense, and you'll be able to apply it to your code with confidence. I hope you'll join me in learning about the adapter design pattern for C#, and I hope you'll continue exploring other design patterns as well, here on Pluralsight.
