Ok, this might not look the right place for discussion for this kind of subject but bare with me, this is the right place.

So I recently come back on job market after 3 years and attended two interviews. The biggest change I have seen so far that every company wants to you take test on some testing websites. What surprises me is that all these test questions are about API and very few about concepts or OO design related. Now Java is the world with lots of changes on a daily basis and having handy IDE to provide you will those APIs, who will remember all these API methods and attributes? Oh well oh where did those good mind stimulating interviews go? I sure am missing having discussion of solving a problem or why will you use one solution verses another or why use one technologies verses another over an interview. Interviews got little harder (for me at least) if not impossible.

Why am I not surprised that Singleton has been identified as Anti-pattern.
As for design goes your bottom line will come to the basic OO principles. keep your design in limits of OO principles and you will just do fine. On the other hand design patterns are solution to a specific problem. However, The problem is, not all the patterns are applied from the beginning. As the system goes through changes (iterations) you will be able to identify the problem more clearly and decide on which pattern solves this problem.
