    Default Design Patterns

    I am steadily trying to improve myself as person who is learning Java as a first programming language. I'm studying about problems and algorithms by practising problems on TopCoder alongside reading articles and watching videos on the topic.

    Though I was wondering would it be more beneficial for me to learn Design patterns alongside or should I save this for more advanced studies.

    Also is the subject of Design patterns similar to algorithms and data structures in that the principles follow in different programming languages, or do different programming languages have radically different takes on the topic.

    There would be no much harm reading at least about basic patterns. Things like Singleton, Factory, Builder, Pool, Wrapper and Adapter are very common and you often can find them even in standard Java API.

    Most of patterns do not depend on chosen language and platform. However, some languages prefer (perhaps historically) different patterns compared to others. Most common example is that in Java we often use Data Access Object as pattern for dealing with database, while in PHP, Python, Ruby and even Scala people often prefer ActiveRecord.

    But of course there are a few attempts to create ActiveRecord-oriented frameworks for Java and there are DAO-like solutions for PHP etc.

    I completely agree with Rodiongork and you can learn SRP principle, DRY principle, DAO design pattern which will increase your performance during programing.
