  • "I wish I had known this book existed when I was learning OOP."

    I'm not sure patterns are very useful when being totally new to OO. It's just too much to grasp the fundamentals, and the same time fully understand abstract object and class relationships on an even higher level. Understanding data vs behaviour-centric thinking, decoupling, modularity, information hiding, etc, etc is probably more important and fundamental than patterns.

    But it sure is useful once you get the basics down.

    Your reaction sound like mine when I discovered the GoF book. The next natural phase is to see patterns everywhere you go :)
