Design patterns are here to ease work to us developers. They present already made solutions to known problems. I will not go into philosophical debate about why they are practically not used in LotusScript. Instead, in future articles, I will try to present basic design patterns translated to LotusScript.

For those that are already interested or just want to check what the fuss is all about, there are some great books out there (I recommend Head First Design Patterns). I would also suggest checking Yahoo! Design Pattern Library resource.
