Course Overview


  • Prerequisites: Basic understanding of Java
  • Taught by a Stanford-educated ex-Googler husband-wife team
  • More than 50 real-world examples

This is an intensely practical deeply thoughtful and quirky take on 24 Design Patterns that matter.

Let's parse that.

  • The course is intensely practical bursting with examples - the more important patterns have 3-6 examples each. More than 50 real-world Java examples in total.
  • The course is deeply thoughtful and it will coax and cajole you into thinking about the irreducible core of an idea - in the context of other patterns overall programming idioms and evolution in usage.
  • The course is also quirky. The examples are irreverent. Lots of little touches: repetition zooming out so we remember the big picture active learning with plenty of quizzes. There's also a peppy soundtrack and art - all shown by studies to improve cognition and recall.
  • Lastly the patterns matter because each of these 24 is a canonical solution to recurring problems.

What's Covered:

  • Decorator Factory Abstract Factory Strategy Singleton Adapter Facade Template Iterator MVC Observer Command Composite Builder Chain of Responsibility Memento Visitor State Flyweight Bridge Mediator Prototype Proxy Double-Checked Locking and Dependency Injection.
  • The only GoF pattern not covered is the Interpreter pattern which we felt was too specialized and too far from today's programming idiom; instead we include an increasingly important non-GoF pattern Dependency Injection.
  • Examples: Java Filestreams Reflection XML specification of UIs Database handlers Comparators Document Auto-summarization Python Iterator classes Tables and Charts Threading Media players Lambda functions Menus Undo/Redo functionality Animations SQL Query Builders Exception handling Activity Logging Immutability of Strings Remote Method Invocation Serializable and Cloneable networking.
  • Dependency Inversion Demeter's Law the Open-Closed Principle loose and tight coupling the differences between frameworks libraries and design patterns.

Basic knowledge:

  • There are no pre-requisites other than curiosity - about Design about Patterns about Life :-)

Who should take this course

Who is the target audience?

  • Yep! Engineers - from street-smart coders to wise architects - ought to take this course. After this class you'll look at software design with a new pair of eyes.
  • Yep! Product Managers ought to take this course - you will learn to understand the how of Software Design without being constrained by it.
  • Yep! Technology executives and investors who don't write code ought to take this course - after this you will always have an intelligent point-of-view on software and won't find your eyes glazing over when its time to talk nitty-gritty
  • Computer Science majors (undergrad or grad) - if you are among the folks that make 'real world example Observer Pattern' such a common search phrase on Google this is precisely the place for you.
  • Yep! Journalists Wall Street types or IP lawyers seeking to understand recurring patterns of problems and solutions in technology.
  • Yep! If you are prepping hard for software engineering interviews :-)
  • Nope! This course is not right for you if you are looking for a Programming 101 course. That's not because there are pre-requisites but simply because a Programming 101 course focuses on syntax and on doing while this course focuses on design and on thinking.
