(The Lack of) Design Patterns in Python

In many dynamic language communities such as Python, there is a distinct lack of Design Patterns. Are the communities ignorant of Design Patterns or is there something else going on here? This talk is based on my well-trafficked article Python isn’t just Java without the compile,
which compares Java to Python and other dynamic languages. The session expands on that article by using Design Patterns as a crude metric of gaps in a programming language.
