What’s so special about design patterns?

At any given moment, someone struggles with the same software design problems you have. And,
chances are, someone else has already solved your problem. This edition of Head First Design
Patterns—now updated for Java 8—shows you the tried-and-true, road-tested patterns used by
developers to create functional, elegant, reusable, and flexible software. By the time you finish this
book, you’ll be able to take advantage of the best design practices and experiences of those who
have fought the beast of software design and triumphed.

What’s so special about this book?
We think your time is too valuable to spend struggling with new concepts. Using the latest research
in cognitive science and learning theory to craft a multi-sensory learning experience, Head First
Design Patterns uses a visually rich format designed for the way your brain works, not a text-heavy
approach that puts you to sleep.
