Presentation: "Making use of Patterns"

Time: Monday 14:45 - 15:45

Location: Store Sal

Abstract: It's getting close to twenty years since people first started to discuss using patterns to help capture and pass on experience with software development. Many books and articles have been written that use patterns, with varying degrees of pedagogical and commercial success. I've been an active user of patterns and will share various conclusions I've drawn about when and how to use patterns both as a writer and a reader.

Martin Fowler, Chief Scientist, Loud-mouth on Object Design

 Martin  Fowler

Martin Fowler is an author, speaker, consultant and general loud-mouth on software development.

He concentrates on designing enterprise software - looking at what makes a good design and what practices are needed to come up with good design. He has pioneered object-oriented technology, refactoring, patterns, agile methodologies, domain modeling, the Unified Modeling Language (UML), and Extreme Programming.

He's the Chief Scientist at ThoughtWorks - an international application development company, and has written five books on software development: Analysis Patterns, UML Distilled (now in its 3rd edition), Refactoring, Planning Extreme Programming (with Kent Beck), and Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture. I also write articles regularly on my site at Martin Fowler.
