✍🏾 HYBRID: "Design Patterns" with Codecinella

When: Wednesday, July 20th from 6:30 pm to 8:00pm
Where: Online via Zoom AND in-person at the Bubbler Room, Madison Central Public Library, 201 W Mifflin St.

Let's get together to chat about anything / everything related to design patterns:

"In software engineering, a design pattern is a general repeatable solution to a commonly occurring problem in software design. A design pattern isn't a finished design that can be transformed directly into code. It is a description or template for how to solve a problem that can be used in many different situations."

What are some problems you encounter over and over, and how have you solved them? Let's chat!

All genders are welcome at this event. :)

Join Us!
