When we think about Design Patterns, without a mistake, we point to some code structure, that more or less defines some good practice in software development. One rule is — it must contain some code example.

As with any other pattern from Domain-Driven Design, even Module has its examples in day-to-day use in software development. Naturally, that use may differ from other languages, but the main idea is still there.

Let us examine that idea.
