Software patterns have revolutionized the way developers think about how software is designed, built, and documented, and this unique book offers an in-depth look of what patterns are, what they are not, and how to use them successfully. This book addresses the question of what a pattern language is and compares various pattern paradigms, including pattern compounds, pattern complements, pattern collections, pattern stories, and pattern sequences.
