JavaScript Design Patterns

I’ve been looking to expand my knowledge of design patterns in JavaScript and I believe I’ve come accross the perfect thing to help me out.

Learning JavaScript Design Patterns is a free online book written by Addy Osmani. It’s packed with information to make you a JavaScript design patterns ninja! Check out the preface to get a sense of what you’ll be learning from this excellent book:

Design patterns are reusable solutions to commonly occurring problems in software design. They are both exciting and a fascinating topic to explore in any programming language.

One reason for this is that they help us build upon the combined experience of many developers that came before us and ensure we structure our code in an optimized way, meeting the needs of problems we’re attempting to solve.

Design patterns also provide us a common vocabulary to describe solutions. This can be significantly simpler than describing syntax and semantics when we’re attempting to convey a way of structuring a solution in code form to others.

In this book we will explore applying both classical and modern design patterns to the JavaScript programming language.
