Design patterns can be very useful in Python (as in any other language) but there are right ways and wrong ways to choose which ones to implement, and how to implement. This advanced tutorial offers many practical examples of "the good, the bad, and the beautiful" ("the ugly" doesn't apply to Python!-) and some theoretical underpinnings for them. Read more.
