Lessons Learned from Using Design Patterns in Industry Projects [TPLoP Journal]

Abstract: Design patterns help in the creative act of designing, implementing, and documenting software systems. They have become an important part of the vocabulary of experienced software developers. This article reports about the author’s experiences and lessons learned with using and applying design patterns in industry projects. The article not only discusses how using patterns benefits the design of software systems, but also how firms can benefit further from developing a firm-specific design language and how firms can motivate and educate developers to learn and develop this shared language.

Keywords: Design pattern, pattern language, design language, design communication, design collaboration, design implementation, design documentation.
