For those of you looking to get started with design patterns but reluctant because of language barriers, I started a project on CodePlex for the Head First Design Patterns book. The original code examples are in Java, and they have been made available in C# and C++ as well, which are all available on the book’s online page, http://www.headfirstlabs.com/books/hfdp/.
Currently the project is only Chapters 1-8, but pending the big game on Sunday I will be finished up sometime next week. This is one of my first CodePlex contributions, so any helpful hints or suggestions would be much appreciated. Otherwise, go ahead and get the source and start looking into design patterns. I definitely recommend getting the book and definitely check out the entire Head First series!
