Chapter 3. Creational Design Patterns
Creational design patterns are one of the three types of design pattern commonly associated with the Gang of Four; they are design patterns that concern object creation mechanisms.
Instantiating objects or basic class creation on their own, without controlling this process, can result in design problems or simply add additional complexity to the process.
In this chapter, we will cover the following topics:
- The software design process
- Simple Factory
- Factory Method
- Abstract Factory pattern
- Lazy initialization
- Builder pattern
- Prototype pattern
Before we learn about Creational design patterns, let's talk a little about the architectural process.
