This GOTO Night is the first of a series of community events to take place from now until GOTO Chicago 2015. The 3rd annual GOTO Chicago Conference and Trainings will take place May 11th-14th, 2015. Check out last year's conference here: http://gotocon.com/chicago-2014/.
About the talk
Root cause analysis of some faults in Design Patterns
As Design Patterns reaches its 20th year, its faults are easier to see. We'll look at a few of them and see if we can learn lessons about writing patterns. The talk will focus on Observer, Adapter, and Iterator. If you haven't looked at them for awhile, you might want to refresh your memory before the talk.
