The purpose of the Design Patterns Study Group (DPSG) of Cape Cod is to learn and come to master
design patterns and pattern languages. Members of the DPSG meet once a week, in
small groups to question, clarify, compare and ultimately understand
patterns that are object-oriented,
architectual, analytical and organizational.
At the conclusion of each
meeting, our purpose shifts to eating food and/or drinking beer.
The DPSG consists of the three sub-groups, called
4G, (4 Gangsters) and
PL (Pattern Languages).
There are no papers to sign when you join, no money to put down, etc. You may just show up
and if you do so regularly, you will be added to our private mailing list. If you need to
drive in, you will be pleased to know that, unlike the rest of Manhattan, there is actually
free and available parking on Green Street, right outside of Space Untitled (just park after 6:00PM).

Visit the DPSG's three groups (GoF,
4G, and PL) to find
out when they are meeting and what they are covering. Usually, all three groups
meet at the same time and place.
All groups within the NYC DPSG meet practically every Monday of every week throughout the year. Our meeting hours are from 7:00PM to 9:00PM.
Our regular meeting location is in SoHo, at a gallery/espresso bar named
Space Untitled at 133 Greene street, between Houston and Prince.
After the class we usually end up going out for some food and/or beer.
