    Design Patterns

    In week one of C# 102, Mr. Busby and Mr. LaQuet discuss a book called Design Patterns by the Gang of Four. They mention the fact, however, that all the code examples are written in C++. I found a C# implementation of this book on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Design-Pattern...dp/0956575862/

    Does anyone think this book would be a good choice, or would one be better off reading the C++ version by the original authors? I did take a C++ 101 course in college, but I feel much more comfortable in the C# language in general (for obvious reasons).

    Or perhaps 3D Buzz plans on actually making a course on the book?

    Gang of four was one of the original go to guides for Design Patterns. Translating a design pattern into another language should not be that hard as long as the languages behave similar, like Object Oriented Languages. Looking at the description of that book says it covers all of the Gang of Four patterns

    Coverage includes all 23 of the patterns from the "Gang of Four" work, additional patterns including Model-View-Controller, and simple Uml diagrams.
    I would say yes that's fine, however i have not read the book so i don't know how well it teaches you.

    If you want video tutorials, i learn better from video's, then you could check out another training site i have used called http://www.pluralsight.com/training, they mainly focus around programming for professional business applications. Search for Design Patterns Library, the patterns covered are shown in C#

    Keep in mind that its the idea that matters behind the pattern not the actual implementation, they probably show you a implementation in the book not THE implemantation if that makes sense
    Life is too short to worry about things

    Yes, yes, of course.

    Well I went ahead and ordered that book along with a couple other intermediate C# books for when I finish C# 103. Should be a good time.

    I know you said that you already ordered the book but I thought I would share that I found this book entertaining and a good explanation of design patterns. http://www.amazon.com/First-Design-P.../dp/0596007124
