Decorator pattern overview: C# Design Patterns: Part 1 (2016)

The Decorator Pattern, in general, adds work to objects dynamically and permits us to extend functionality via subclassing. In this video, Reynald reviews the original Gang of Four description of this pattern and then provide a simplified explanation. He then discusses the class diagram and gives a visual example using a program for a car that can leverage this pattern to add features while calculating subtotals without complicating code. This video prepares you for upcoming videos requiring code assessment and how it applies the Decorator Pattern.
