1. Identifing the problem domain and the choose of the appropriate design pattern.

2. GoF patterns do not suffient due to rapid technology changes.

Developers are often aware of the problem and related domain. What seems difficult is to know which design patterns to choose as several permutations may exist to solve the same problem but with different kinds of output, extensibility, behavior and performance.

In the Design Pattern Engine, our focus is not only to enable people to make better use of existing patterns but also allow them to think beyond them and develop new patterns with ease.

I am planning to shift this area to GitHub as this idea got selected in Challenge of Code 2010, ACM Bangalore Chapter, India. We can continue to build here but I have tried with both Git and Mercurial and they can be integrated with VS2010 easily making it less difficult to shift to the new repository.
