This is the third of an eight part series where Robert is joined by Phil Japikse to discuss design patterns. A design pattern is a best practice you can use in your code to solve a common problem.  In this episode, Phil demonstrates the Template Method pattern. This pattern defines the program skeleton of an algorithm in an operation, deferring some steps to subclasses.
