The Java Design Patterns Course
Understand the how and the why of the gang of four design patterns using Java.
So you have some Java experience under your belt, but are trying to figure out what to do next to make it easier to get that next job or consulting gig, and to stand out from the crowd.
Maybe you have heard of design patterns before and have seen programmers who know them and are able to implement them are held in very high regard.
One thing is clear, Java programmers with design pattern experience are in high demand. Design patterns are heavily used in the real world, so it’s essential that Java programmers learn how to identify design patterns and implement them.
And that’s what you are going to learn in this course!
Perhaps you tried to learn about design patterns in the past, but struggled to understand them. This course is going to give you the core design patterns experience you need!
This course is unique in comparison to other design patterns courses.
Why? It not only teaches how to use design patterns, but perhaps more importantly, it teaches why you should use them! Why they are the best approach and how using them can make you a super productive and awesome Java Programmer.
The reality is that Java developers who truly understand how to use design patterns are in high demand.
So what specifically is included in this course?
This course focuses on the details and a thorough understanding of all design patterns from the Gang of four.
Who are the Gang of four?
Erich Gamma, Richard Helm, Ralph Johnson and John Vlissides released a book in 1994 that was and is still considered a classic. The concepts are still very relevant in 2019!
This course is all about showing you how to use their design patterns in todays software development environment.
You will learn detailed aspects of common design patterns (23 from the Gang of four) using the Java programming language.
Why should I bother with Design Patterns?
In programming terms, a design pattern is a solution to a common problem that occurs when writing software. Think of it as more like a template than actual code – its a how-to to solve a problem that can be re-used in many different situations.
Using design patterns gives you a way to solve common problems with a proven solution! So learning java design patterns and architecture and being able to use and implement them are critical to take your Java programming to new levels.
What you will learn in this course.
You will learn how to implement specific design patterns in addition to learning why they are the best approach and how they make you a super productive and awesome Java programmer.
Many, many examples and challenges are provided to test your understanding of every pattern that you have learned.
This course is unique to other courses here at Udemy in that the details and the why are explained. We do not just go through projects and provide a how-to. You will learn WHY you should be using a particular design pattern and the benefits to doing so.
Jason Fedin, you instructor is an expert Java developer, and has one of the most popular C programming languages on Udemy (published on this channel).
As a professional programmer, with over 18 years of commercial experience, you can be assured you are learning from a true professional and learning the real-world skills you need to know to succeed.
If you are ready to get started, click on that enroll button and start taking your Java skills to new levels!
- You should have a general understanding of Java - ideally by going through this channels Java Crash Course or Java Masterclass
- A Windows computer, Linux machine, or a Mac so that the free IDE can be downloaded and install (full instructions included).
- An open mind to learn something new and exciting which may make a huge difference in your future career.
What you will learn
- Understand all 23 of the Gang of Four's design patterns and how to implement them in Java.
- Be able to demonstrate industry best practices in the implementations of Java design patterns code you write.
- Obtain a solid understanding of what design patterns are, how to implement them but also WHY you should!
- Acquired the design patterns skills you need to become a senior Java developer.
Who should attend
- If you are a beginner programmer, then this course is probably not for you. In that scenario consider taking a Java or C# crash course from this channel.
- Programmers who have a reasonable understanding of the basics of Java, ready to take their skills to new levels.
- Existing Java programmers who want to obtain skills in Design Patterns to move into more senior programming positions.

Initially I Felt very Boring and Odd when the instructor keep reading the slides. Later I understood there's no other way to instruct design patterns other than this way. I encourage if the instructor instruct with casual conversation with the picked core points from the slides with real time examples. Otherwise its just enough to read the slides with mute other than listening to the lectures.

This course is a fantastic visual on how design patterns work to make code cleaner, cohesive and easier to maintain. It works well reading Head First Design Patterns while doing this course. This course will make you understand how to write better object-oriented code. Jason is a brilliant instructor that demonstrates a vast understanding on the subject. The videos are great to use as a reference when you have learnt a pattern. I recommend buying this course if you are serious about being a software engineer.

I have never seen a complete course about both OOP Principles and Design Pattens like this course, Well Done !

Exactly what I was wanting. Anyone can learn syntax, but the course outline confirms this is about learning how to leverage the power of OO programming.

I have really enjoyed this course. I have to watch all the courses at 1.5x speed, but that is a personal preference. The information delivered is excellent, and the presenter is knowledgeable about the subject matter. I am learning a lot, and I have been writing code for a long time.

The professor said something that it's absolutely true. Many instructors tell what to do but not the reason behind it.

Jason is a well-seasoned professional, and he has done a great job of collecting and summarising design patterns, along with essential design principles that should be followed by anyone who is striving to write quality code and software. I have mainly three gripes with this course (thus the 4-star rating): 1. It could use more implementations for each pattern: I had to search for and go through more examples so that I could cement my understanding of the pattern in question. There should be at least one basic and an advanced (more lifelike) implementation. 2. Interactive visual aids: the UML class and sequence diagrams could use some highlighting or motion graphics in order to facilitate understanding. In some of the cases picture clarity was also an issue. 3. Reading slides: This one is probably personal preference, but I believe that slides should only contain keywords or smaller chunks, not whole sentences. I would rather listen to the instructor's own wording of the concepts than listen to how he reads all the words from the slides. Otherwise, the course well-put together, and I hope to see these additions and improvements in the near future.

Excellent description of design patterns without the example being so complex it distracts from the actual pattern. The slides are harder to understand without the context of the coding so it can be worth going back to the slides afterwards.

Noticed few confusing mistakes in presentation and during conversation, but common level of explanation is high.
