Head First Design Patterns (English) 1st Edition (Paperback) Price: Rs. 619

Head First Design Patterns teaches object oriented design and techniques, using Java.


Summary Of The Book


This is one of the Head First series books that teaches concepts in an easy and interactive manner, with lots of visuals. Head First Design Patterns, as the name suggests, deals with software design patterns. These design patterns can be considered as templates that can be used as a base to develop new code.


According to the authors, it is not necessary to reinvent the wheel when it already exists. Just use it and concentrate on building other things instead. So, this book shows how software design can be made easier by taking advantage of the patterns already out there in the digital universe. Studying some of the best design techniques can really cut down on the development time of new software.


Head First Design Patterns starts with a farcical project - building a duck simulation program. This section is told from the viewpoint of the programmer, Joe, who has to build a virtual duck, with all its appearances and behavior. Using this object model, he has to populate the virtual duck pond.


Using this base, the authors get across concepts like designing and implementing behavior, and encapsulation. In a similar vein, the book progresses, with each chapter taking up a different kind of project to get across different design concepts, and each chapter discussing design patterns that can be used.


Interspersed with the design discussion are many Java techniques, which are also clearly explained in relation to the concept being discussed.
Head First Design Patterns is written in a light style using puzzles, jokes, and visuals to highlight the points being taught.


Head First Design Patterns covers object-oriented concepts, design patterns, and relevant Java features so that at the end of the book, the reader gets a good practical understanding of the subject.

Poor quality paper but good content

Watch out, the paper quality is very bad. I already had the earlier version of this book. I was disappointed with the paper and print quality. This is not a fiction book to be read once quickly. You need to read this book patiently. So this kind of poor quality does not help. I am not satisfied with… (View complete review)

Its like learning from a nursery teacher... which is AWESOME!

the way complex problems are presented and explained is very impressive. The big ideas are compressed down to a few words and represented in the best way possible. All of the words of the design pattern Guru are words to live by when coding. Clean and concise. Best design pattern book out there for … (View complete review)

Surely the first step to understand Design patterns!

This book presents the design patterns in such a beautiful way that the concepts sits at the back of your mind. It ignites the need of design patterns in your day-to-day work.

It's a true story that I read about something called "Observer pattern" and a month later I suggested a new feature in the product I am working on at IBM. Currently I am involved in its development - thanks to this book.

I appreciated the true use of UML diagrams in the book. Every design pattern is explained with the help of UML diagrams wherever necessary. Along with design patterns, now I understand UML paradigm in

Very Descriptive book but bad print quality

I had ordered this book since I liked this book after reading the same from my company Library. Unfortunately its print quality is bad when compared to the edition I have here in my company library (July 2007 for sale in Indian Subcontinent etc).
The edition that I have is the same version(October 2011 Edition Reprint for sale in Indian Subcontinent) but the latest reprint.
Unfortunately this reprint is pretty bad compared to the 2007.
Both are grayscale printing but somehow the one I got is more like back and white. Either this book is not original or the publishers have degraded it.

Awesome book, poor printing quality

This should be a part of every software engineering curriculum. Many questions that had been plaguing me for weeks were answered even before I finished the first chapter. The style of writing makes it so that even a child can understand the concepts presented here. My only reason for not giving this a 5 star is the poor quality of the printing. Letters are missing here and there and white lines run through some gray scale diagrams. Though it is not so bad as to impair understanding, as a paying customer I believe that I can expect better quality products. I hope the publisher takes steps to re

Wonderful book

Must read if you want to get down to the basics of design patterns and when and how to apply them.

Good experience and knowledge of OOPS is desirable.

Good book for OO experienced people

If this book needs to be cashed in fully, one should:
(i)Have the skill to represent OO models using UML
(ii)Have good working knowledge of an OO language (Java, C etc)
(iii)Have insights to inheritance, aggregation, composition and general polymorphic behaviour
(iv)Have prior experience in confronting applications that need deep/incisive code changes for small changes in fuctionality.

In spite of the casual approach to presenting the essence of the patterns, this book is not for beginners. In fact OO design itself is not for beginners. Occasionally I have felt the need to re-read th

Its Head First, SE's know it well

Loved the book, the way it tries to load the brain with these fantastic design patterns. However, the authors are so confident and stubborn at places, one may find them rude at times but that's fine with me as Design patterns are not for novices (or just the beginners in programming) anyway.
Its not just value for money it is rather more than that. DPs are explained through examples, I already have read them many a times but this book just changed my way of looking at the problems. I am damn sure it will yours too..
My take is 'Just Go For It !!!'
