comment Do I need to learn python first to understand the part 2 of the book Test Driven development?
If you're really confused or concerned about the second portion of that book, I suggest you read this excellent alternative (first/instead): Test Driven: TDD and Acceptance TDD for Java Developers

comment Why isn't Java more widely used for game development?
It is possible to write games with Java. Jogl bindings and JMonkeyEngine game engine do exist (I'm sure there are others). Don't forget the ever popular Java-based game Minecraft.

I wore this out once and a nice old lady asked if I fixed computers... I said "Um, No."

comment Identifying which pattern fits better
Agreed. Patterns usually help extract what you are doing into something testable, replaceable, and readable. But don't get carried away with abstraction... "the most simple way of doing it but no simpler" I believe someone put it.
