The truth of the matter is that you can get through the entire book without having to write a single line of code. This is a book on software design, it is not a coding book. That said, I do use code to make very concrete some of the concepts. Personally, my depth of understanding increases when I get my hands dirty, and that is why I include code. If you are a decent programmer, in any language, I think you'll benefit from those examples. I give step by step instructions that will allow you to easily get the samples up and running.
