Design Patterns r Us

Holy crap, design patterns rock.

I have spent my life finding patterns in everything I see, everything I do.
The irony of design patterns in a computer science setting is that they may seem arcane, but they bear a common sense stamp that makes them utterly useful and absolutely a joy to dive into!
Design Pattern References
Get them, read them, live them... Until you find a better solution ;)
I personally dive into four books on a regular basis for "inspiration" :
Effective Java (Second Edition) by Joshua Bloch
Refactoring to Patterns by Joshua Kerievsky
Implementation Patterns by Kent Beck of Three Rivers Institute
and of course
Design Patterns by Gamma, Helm, Johnson and Vlissides "The Gang of Four"
What fun!
