Join us Thursday, November 15, 2012 for a great night of hands-on geek fun and learning. Free food and socializing starts at 6:00 PM, and the lab begins at 6:30 PM. Our meetings are held at 11 Lea Avenue, Nashville, TN (directions).
Exploring Design Patterns
After years of solving the same types of problems over and over, developers recognized there were common patterns that could be applied to many programming problems. Out of this grew what we call “Design Patterns.” Learning design patterns keeps us from “reinventing the wheel,” and gives us a common vocabulary to express our ideas with other developers. In this hands-on lab, we will examine the most common design patterns, and work through exercises to help us see how these patterns can be put into action. Whether you are familiar with design patterns or not, we could all benefit from learning more and sharing experiences.
