Understand what structural design patterns are
How structural patterns help create bigger structures through inheritance & composition
Use adapter to convert an incompatible interface into a compatible one
Simply the complex interfaces of a system through facade
Use proxy to control access to an object
Understand how decorator can be used to add more behaviors to an object at runtime
Form larger structures through recursive composition through composite
Enable sharing of large number of objects through flyweight
Separate abstraction & its implementation to provide variations without implementing too many classes

Design Patterns are a way to solve common object oriented design problems. But understanding and learning design patterns is hard and takes time. Looking at a pattern is like looking at a solution without a problem, unless you’ve encountered the problem in the past.

This course aims to help you understand & implement Structural Design Patterns. Each pattern is explained with multiple examples and through modern C++. This helps you understand how the pattern can be implemented efficiently using language features. I provide real-world  examples written in Modern C++. These examples will compile & execute on any platform that supports a C++ compiler.

This is how the course teaches creational patterns.

  1. The intent, structure of the pattern is explained through UML class diagram.

  2. Basic implementation details of the pattern are explained.

  3. The pattern is implemented in a simple example.

  4. You get familiar with the overall implementation of the pattern.

  5. Another example is introduced that has design issues the pattern aims to resolve.

  6. We examine the issues and refactor the code by applying the design pattern step by step.

  7. Alternative scenarios & examples are explained along with differences between them. You also learn how to decide between different alternatives.

  8. I discuss the pattern in context of C++ and how to tweak it for performance, reusability & maximum flexibility.

  9. Finally, you’ll learn when to use the pattern and its pros & cons.

This is an intensive discussion that spans multiple lectures. At the end of each section, you’ll understand the pattern in depth and can apply it in your code or easily clear any design interview.

You can view and review the lecture materials indefinitely, like an on-demand channel.
Definitely! If you have an internet connection, courses on Udemy are available on any device at any time. If you don't have an internet connection, some instructors also let their students download course lectures. That's up to the instructor though, so make sure you get on their good side!
