Addison-Wesley (Software Patterns Series), 1997.
A collection of the current best practices and trends in the patterns community, this title provides software design solutions for professional developers. This third volume is the first to include international submissions, giving the editors even more high-quality essays from which to choose.
Addison-Wesley (Software Patterns Series), 1995.
The chapters in this book are based on papers presented at the First Annual Conference of Pattern Languages of Programming (PLoP) held near Monticello, Illinois, in August of 1994. This book is more than just a compendium of conference papers, however. It represents a broad offering from a new body of literature focusing on patterns and pattern languages. This book constitutes what we expect to be the first in a series of similar edited works on an ever-broadening spectrum of software patterns and pattern languages.
This volume, with contributions from the biggest names in the patterns community, is the second in a series documenting patterns for professional software developers. These patterns capture solutions to a plethora of recurring problems in software design and development, including language-specific patterns and idioms; general- and special-purpose patterns; architectural patterns; process and organizational patterns; expositional patterns; and patterns for concurrent programming, distributed systems, and reactive systems. This new collection not only reveals secrets of great software professionals but also makes those secrets easy to apply to your own work.

PATTERNS are about accumulating expertise through the experience of past successes. They are about learning from best practice through focusing on the abstract core of solutions to problems. Right now companies are interested but nervous about patterns. It's a problem, and so a book about both patterns and the experience of using them is one for which many of us have been waiting. Linda Rising's book The Patterns Handbook fits the bill perfectly.
