There are way too many patterns out there to be mastered but I rely on probably 4 to 5 of which I will talk about one below:

1]Strategy Pattern: Now this pattern is probably the easiest to master. It involves taking a preexisting set of classes and exposing their properties to other newer classes using inter…
