Observer vs Pub-Sub-Pattern

Sigrid 3 years ago updated by Alex Shvets 3 years ago 1

I just read the page of the Observer Pattern and was a little bit confused with the naming, as I had different names (Subject, Observer) in my mind. You use Publisher and Subscriber in your explaination which is a little bit misleading, as the Publisher-Subscriber-Pattern is someting different. Is there any way to change it on the website? I love the website and often share links from it, but this time I didn't want to share as it could possibly be confusing.

Thanks for opening my eyes to this issue. Frankly, I never thought this might be confusing. I'll note it down to revisit the naming in the future edition.
