Design Patterns in the Agile World

More on the Technical Agility Webinar Series

This webinar serves as both an introduction to design patterns as well as why they are important in the Agile world.

It also presents a more powerful way of looking at patterns than mere solutions to recurring problems in a context.  Patterns have long been thought of as a means of handling variation, which they are. But this variation can be more than just two ways of doing things at a current time.  It can be how we do it now and how we’ll need to do it in the future.  This insight enables patterns to be a great approach to drive emergent design.

Patterns can be understood at three levels:

  • Patterns as solutions to recurring problems in a context
  • Patterns as a conceptual approach to solving particular problems
  • Patterns as a way of resolving forces in your problem domain

Most folks think of patterns as one of the first two types. However, the real power of patterns start when one considers them as a way to better understand one’s problem domain and then craft solutions geared toward the challenge to be solved.

This webinar discusses:

  • The thinking underneath design patterns
  • How they can be used to help understand one’s problem domain
  • How this approach is essential in in Agile development


  • The thought process of design patterns
  • Looking at 2 common patterns conceptually – Strategy, The Template Method
  • Patterns as a way of encapsulating variation

Attendees will:

  • understand the thought process behind design patterns
  • deepen their understanding of design patterns
  • see why patterns are so useful in in Agile development
