Convention Ctr – 211C
Todd Lauinger, Best Buy Co., Inc.

Most software developers think a thorough knowledge of the Java programming language and its numerous APIs is the key to developing good Java software. This is often done at the expense of understanding and applying solid object technique. Participants in this tutorial will discuss the most common object design mistakes I have seen in working with over 200 designers in the past seven years. We will analyze the source of the mistakes, work to understand object principles to help these mistakes, and apply the newly understood principles to example problems.
