Design patterns help you solve common software problems with known, proven approaches. The proxy design pattern is one of the most common and useful patterns you'll encounter. This course shows you when and how to apply the proxy pattern in C#.
Design patterns help you solve common software problems with known, proven approaches. In this course, C# Design Patterns: Proxy, you will learn about four different variants of the Proxy pattern. The proxy design pattern is one of the most common and useful patterns you'll encounter, with uses for performance, security, and code organization. First, you will see the problem the proxy pattern solves and what software design principles apply. Next, you will discover how to apply the proxy pattern. Finally, you will learn about other similar design patterns. When you have completed this short course, you will have both a theoretical and real code understanding of applying the pattern in a variety of different scenarios using .NET and C#.
Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Steve Smith, aka Ardalis, and welcome to my course, C# Design Patterns: Proxy. I'm an experienced .NET developer, architect, and trainer. My onsite and remote workshops, as well as my Pluralsight courses, have helped thousands of developers and teams to 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 toolkit 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 proxy design pattern, one of my favorites for its overall usefulness. Some of the major topics that we will cover include what problem is the proxy pattern meant to solve? What software design principles apply to this pattern? How can you apply the proxy pattern in four specific ways in your applications? And what other design patterns are similar to this one? By the end of this course, you'll be able to recognize situations where the proxy pattern makes sense and be able to apply it with confidence. I hope you'll join me in learning about the proxy design pattern for C#, and I hope you'll continue exploring other design patterns as well, here on Pluralsight.
