Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Esteban Herrera. Welcome to my course, Design Patterns in Java: The Big Picture. I have been developing and designing software for more than 10 years, and I love teaching all I know about it. Design patterns capture knowledge from experts, so they can help you improve you your object-oriented skills, make your life easier by not reinventing the wheel, and offer you a common vocabulary for more precise and simpler communication. This course is going to give you an overview of design patterns as described by described by the Gang of Four book. Some of the major topics that we will cover include what are design patterns, concepts, and principles of object-oriented programming, and a high-level overview of the most important creational, behavioral, and structural patterns. By the end of this course, you'll have a foundational knowledge of design patterns and the principles behind them. I'll work with simple and easy-to-understand examples, but before beginning the course, you should have a beginner-level knowledge of Java version 8 or above. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn design patterns with the Design Patterns in Java: The Big Picture course, at Pluralsight.
