Every week, the Enterprise Gangsters Group studies some of the best software patterns papers to emerge over the last 3-4 years. These papers are hand-picked by the DPSG from a number of great books, including proceedings from patterns conferences, such as PLoP (Pattern Languages of Programming).
What Are We Studying
Martin Fowler's book on Enterprise Application Architecture analyzes many problems of developing or architecting large-scale "enterprise" systems and the solutions to these problems. The book is organized in two parts - one is a discussion of developing enterprise systems, and the second part is a list of 50 or so problems and their solutions, organized as Patterns. Each week we take several patterns and disect them. We also discuss material from the first part of the book as appropriate.
New members are always welcome. If you're thinking of joining this group, we suggest you read Josh's Learning Guide To Design Patterns.
