Design and develop high-performance, reusable, and maintainable applications using traditional and modern Julia patterns with this comprehensive guide
- Explore useful design patterns along with object-oriented programming in Julia 1.0
- Implement macros and metaprogramming techniques to make your code faster, concise, and efficient
- Develop the skills necessary to implement design patterns for creating robust and maintainable applications
Design patterns are fundamental techniques for developing reusable and maintainable code. They provide a set of proven solutions that allow developers to solve problems in software development quickly. This book will demonstrate how to leverage design patterns with real-world applications.
Starting with an overview of design patterns and best practices in application design, you’ll learn about some of the most fundamental Julia features such as modules, data types, functions/interfaces, and metaprogramming. You’ll then get to grips with the modern Julia design patterns for building large-scale applications with a focus on performance, reusability, robustness, and maintainability. The book also covers anti-patterns and how to avoid common mistakes and pitfalls in development. You’ll see how traditional object-oriented patterns can be implemented differently and more effectively in Julia. Finally, you’ll explore various use cases and examples, such as how expert Julia developers use design patterns in their open source packages.
By the end of this Julia programming book, you’ll have learned methods to improve software design, extensibility, and reusability, and be able to use design patterns efficiently to overcome common challenges in software development.
