The Design Patterns course will be part of the summer semester's curriculum of FMI, Sofia University. I'm glad that I'm part of the team of this course for the second time. This year we will have an entry test with various computer science questions.
We have a tough schedule ahead of us. The course will consist of 15 lectures. Along with the classic Gang Of Four Patterns we've added some new topics and interactive lectures.
This is the full list of lectures:
- OOP design & Singleton
- Factory Method, Abstract Factory & Builder
- Prototype & Flyweight
- Adapter & Bridge
- Composite & Decorator
- Proxy & Facade
- Code-patterns, anti-patterns and real world frameworks (.net, jdk) pattern examples
- Lecture where we write project in front of the students.
- MVC & MVP
- Command & Mediator
- Iterator, Strategy & Template Method
- Observer & Visitor
- State & Memento
- Interpreter & Chain of Responsibility
Along with the course I'm also part of a project to create a Design Patterns book in Bulgarian.Posted by Branislav Abadjimarinov on January 20 at 10:10 AM
I haven't posted for a while and as you can gues I've been busy with all kinds of tasks. As the title states, now I'm officially a Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT). Today I received my confirmation email. Joining the MCT program has been in my list of goals for a long time and I'm glad that I finally accomplished it. Now with the official release Visual Studio 2010 and .net framework 4.0 I'm sure there will be a lot new things to learn. Related to these events I plan to change the structure of this blog and add more detailed posts and tutorials.Posted by Branislav Abadjimarinov on April 30 at 2:15 AM
Web Applications Development with .NET Framework and ASP.NET course in Technical University of Sofia
From Monday, 15 February a new course on programming is starting in the Technical University of Sofia. The course is titled "Web Applications Development with .NET Framework and ASP.NET" and it will cover some of the basics of Microsoft .net platform and ASP.NET. The training provided will be very brief and it will require a lot of dedication by the people attending. I'm taking part with a couple of lectures on ASP.NET and AJAX. The course is free and is supported by Telerik Academy. You can check the course official web site for more information.Posted by Branislav Abadjimarinov on February 11 at 1:43 AM
In codeplex I found a very interesting book part of Microsoft Patterns and Practices. The book is Application Architecture Guide 2.0 - http://www.codeplex.com/AppArchGuide . It covers various topics from application architecture field in Microsoft and in general. The book is a must read for Microsoft application architects, developers and even IT. It will help you understand a lot of the terminology and the ideas behind the application design. The chapters are short, informative and very well written. The book is one of the few good readings I've found about Architectural design patterns. The lack of information in this area is one of the reasons for so much badly designed code in applications. I think also that it will be awesome if we can create a university course for Application Architecture based on this book and other resources.Posted by Branislav Abadjimarinov on January 25 at 8:36 AM
This semester at FMI, Sofia University, is starting a new course dedicated to programming .NET and using the latest Microsoft technologies. The course is called "Programming .NET and WPF". You can check out the program of the course on the official site of FMI. The course also has an online home - www.dotnet.graduate-bg.com , where you can check the schedule of the lectures, download the presentations or ask questions in the forum . The course will present the newest and most powerful presentation technology from Microsoft - WPF (Windows Presentation Foundation). I'll do some basic lectures on Attributes and Strings and also some more in depth presentation on LINQ and multi-threaded programming techniques. This course continues the fine tradition not only to show the latest technologies but also to give students a chance to play and develop their own projects as part of the curriculum.Posted by Branislav Abadjimarinov on October 28 at 2:53 PM
