This course extends object-oriented analysis and design by incorporating design patterns to create interactive applications. Through a survey of established design patterns, you will gain a foundation for more complex software applications. Finally, you will identify problematic software designs by referencing a catalog of code smells.

TOP REVIEWS FROM DESIGN PATTERNS
Good overall. Some of the discussion links go to expired discussion-groups. And a link to a quick summary of each of the patterns would help.
The course and the instructor was so good. The curriculum was well designed and of appropriate length. I really enjoyed and learnt skills that I would be able to apply while developing real software
I have never had a chance to study CS at the university so I am always looking for ways to improve my knowledge - to keep up with fellow programmers. And this course met my requirements perfectly. :)
Very rich content. However, i don't think the community reviewing system for assignments
is the best, if there is a more controlled reviewing option can be used, i think it will be better.
