The origin of design patterns

Richard Willis gave an excellent talk at FlashBrighton last night about the origin of design patterns. I knew that the Gang of Four’s book Design Patterns: Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software was based to a degree on A Pattern Language: Towns, Buildings, Construction, and it was fascinating to find out more about this.

I love the ideas presented in the book, and Rich did an excellent job of making what could have been a geeky session into one that I feel many people could appreciate.

That book is definitely on my shopping list. Good work Rich. 

I should also mention Tom and Chris from Flexible Factory did a good job of clarifying the Event model in AS3 :)
