why a regular developer need design patterns

I asked a friend familiar with design patterns. Here's his answer + my comments.

* Sometimes you need to provide an API to another developer. I feel it's often beneficial to provide a familiar API based on a familiar pattern.
* When you refactor existing code
* A lot of frameworks out there embody design patterns. If you have to create your own framework (for whatever reason), you might need to decipher and follow the same design patterns.

In all these scenarios, concept is more important than knowledge. Variations on the theme needed.
