Welcome to our BLOG dealing with new trends in Software Engineering. Writers of this BLOG are associated with the Institute for Software Technology of Vienna University of Technology. We write on a regular basis about software processes, new technological trends, report from conferences and review literature we read.
I came across the recently started software patterns blog from editors of the International Journal of Patterns (IJOP) focusing on software patterns, stable analysis and design patterns, architectural patterns, pattern languages and how to develop systems of patterns.
The objective of this blog is to foster mature discussions about issues that affect all software developers and practitioners nowadays and may be interesting as good software patterns tend to encapsulate software engineering best practices.
Examples of current software patttens blog topics are:
Patterns that are hard and difficult to understand are, most likely, harder to reuse as well
