In the patterns & practices (p&p) group at Microsoft we have been using software patterns for several years. I’m working with a couple of colleagues on gauging how the folks employing the guidance coming out of p&p (such as guides, application blocks, software factories and reference implementations) have, are, and will be using software patterns.
To do that we assembled a short survey. If you’ve used patterns I encourage you to take it. If you haven’t used patterns yet but your development tools use patterns one way or another then you could also take it since I’m also interested in your perspective.
You can find the survey Software Patterns: Past, Present, Future here. Thank you in advance for your answers.
