Designing Patterns, Templates and Policy Based Design
The book Design Patterns by the "Gang of Four" (GOF) introduced the idea of patterns to the software development community. This seminar offers a novel view of design patterns, focusing on how templates can make working with patterns more effective. You will learn about policy-based design (PBD), which is a template-based technology introduced in Andrei Alexandrescu's Modern C++ Design that can generate dozens of implementations for the same pattern, each embodying a unique set of design trade-offs.
