Book Description

8 Nov 2012
Once you've learned the fundamentals of C#, understanding Design Patterns is essential for writing clear, concise and effective code. This book gives you a step-by-step guide to object-oriented development, using tried and trusted techniques. The examples have been kept simple, enabling you to concentrate on understanding the concepts and application of each pattern. All examples have been designed around a common theme, making it easier to see how they relate to each other and how you can adapt them to your applications. While the book assumes a basic knowledge of C# you don't need to be a guru. This book is perfect for the programmer wishing to take their skills to the next level, and feel confident about using C# in real applications. Coverage includes all 23 of the patterns from the "Gang of Four" work, additional patterns including Model-View-Controller, and simple UML diagrams.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent guide to design patterns 24 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback
This book is an adaptation of the excellent Java version with all examples and explanations converted for C# programmers. As well as covering all 23 patterns as described in GoF there are some additional ones too, and a good chapter that shows how to combine some of the common patterns into a simple example application.

PROS
- Covers all 23 GoF patterns (not all books do this).
- Very simple and clear examples.
- Examples follow a common theme.
- Covers MVC and other useful patterns beyond GoF.
- Only assumes basic knowledge of C#.
- Useful appendix showing a "pattern on a page" for quick reference once you become familiar.
- The best patterns book for beginners that I have seen, and also useful for non-beginners.

CONS
- No one book on the subject can provide all the information you will ever need, so other resources/books may also be beneficial in learning different ways of applying patterns.
- Some minor typographical errors, although there is an errata page on the publisher's website.

Overall, I highly recommend this book. It is clearly and concisely written and covers a subject that all C# programmers should know and have on their bookshelf.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good & concise 21 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As the other review says, this book is short, concise and to the point. Each pattern is briefly explained and then demonstrated with a page or two long code example. All important patterns are covered. Very easy read, easy to implement, ( just code as you read). I think that's all you need to learn the patterns.

Recommended!

Very clear examples of each pattern. The biggest problem I had with the kindle edition is that I like to follow the code and build as I read to reinforce. unfortunately, while working through, I hit a copy limit problem when copying and pasting the code samples from the kindle book to visual studio. So if you also work like this, you may find that at around 58% of the kindle book through, it stops you from copying the code as you learn.

Let this be a warning to all coding kindle publishers. Set the copy limit high enough so that your readership can copy all of the examples and worked examples as they go.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy introduction to Design Patterns in C# 16 May 2013
By ireadthere4ino - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is suitable for those wishing to get a quick intro to design patterns in C#. Whether a beginner to design patterns or those from another language wishing to get a quick reference into design patterns in C#.

From a common base application each pattern is applied, examples are simple without excess code, making them easy to follow & identify the pattern.

Each pattern is in it's own chapter, with it's UML, problem description & example code,

At the end of the book there is a chapter with an application that incorporates all the patterns. In the appendix, each pattern is summarized including it's UML, for a quick reference.

This book would also serve as a good stepping stone, to books that might have a deeper & broader explanation of patterns eg. the original GOF book etc.

For what you can learn in a short time, providing the benefits of better coding, makes this book great value.

4.0 out of 5 stars good explination of design patterns 29 July 2013
By Paul - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Good high level explanation of the original design patterns. Would have liked a when\where to implement and why not to. This one stood out to me because of C# but I Prefer headfirst design Patterns for an overall Story of design patterns

5.0 out of 5 stars Wish all other design pattern books were like this one 24 Nov 2013
By R. Sullivan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Probably one of the best design pattern books I've read. The book uses a very basic application structure based around car components such as engines, gas pedals, etc. Each pattern isn't dependent on a previous chapter, so you won't need to follow along as an application is being built to understand a pattern halfway through the book. Great job by Tony Bevis.
