     A pattern is a best practice proven solution to a problem that is derived from real systems, occurs repeatedly in a given context, contains extensive discussion of when it is appropriate to use that includes positive and negative consequences of usage. Anti-patterns or negative patterns are common practices that may look convenient, appropriate, beneficial, attractive, and reasonable but are harmful in the long run and must be avoided. The common causes of anti-patterns in Software Engineering and Management are lack of awareness, skills, knowledge, and experience.
     This presentation will review few Software Engineering and Management anti-patterns and discuss healthy patterns.
