Learn how to use design patterns in this hands-on interactive workshop. Conducted in a collaborative setting each team will solve a design problem using their design skills in conjunction with a design pattern library/tool. Then we'll come together as a group and discuss your solution and what your experience was like using that library. If you attended NYC UPA’s May event, you learned about design patterns, now use those skills in this hands-on workshop.
To assist those folks new to the idea pattern libraries, we’ll have some volunteers on hand who are familiar with using libraries. If you are already familiar with using design patterns, please let us know when you arrive.
