Awesome ‘Design Patterns’ author interview

I ran across these three interview articles today with Erich Gamma, the author of Design Patterns: Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software. They are totally worth reading, it won’t take more than 15 minutes or so.

How to Use Design Patterns
Erich Gamma on Flexibility and Reuse
Design Principles from Design Patterns

When I read articles like this, it depresses me about the codebase I work in. There is nothing revolutionary here, but it helps to hear someone repeat it who is able to distill things down so nicely. Reading this stuff from the riff-raff on Stack Overflow is one thing, reading it eloquently written by the words of a master is another.
