UI design patterns are frequently misinterpreted and misused concepts. I’ve learned a lot about them in writing this e-book and hope you do too. Too often, they’re confused with specific elements (or features) that can simply be developed as-is from one of the popular Design Pattern and Wireframing Libraries. While those examples are a great start, they’re not enough. And although UI design patterns overlap with development patterns - which you can learn more about in A Beginner’s Guide to Design Patterns - they’re focused more on solving common user problems and less on product problems.
