Pattern-Oriented Software Architecture For Dummies

One of my super short reviews on the books I read in my My Way to PHP series.

Pattern-Oriented Software Architecture For Dummies by Robert Hanmer

A for dummies book, heh? Actually, it’s a pretty great! The book covers all kind of POSADummiespatterns but mainly architectural patterns and some design patterns. He deviated from the ‘standard’ (GoF) way of presenting patterns and succeeded greatly! Each pattern is presented in a context. It feels connected, the examples are great. He shows similar examples of patterns in the real world. Very readable, no implementations but rather explanation.

Incredible good book which made me more accepting and interested in patterns. Thanks for that Robert Hanmer!
