Practitioners Reports

Chair: Rebecca J. Wirfs-Brock
Wirfs-Brock Associates, rebecca@wirfs-brock.com

Presentations and Reports

Practitioner reports are an opportunity to hear about others' experiences applying object-oriented technologies or related software development practices. Practitioner reports explore how concepts that sound good on paper (and at conferences!) work in the real world. They are a valuable means of sharing experiences, especially at the "bleeding edge" of technology. OOPSLA attendees can find out what it is like to adopt a new language, use a new method, develop a common framework, maintain a large application, or migrate to object technology. Expectations, beliefs, and hopes can be validated, or dashed, by the experiences reported from real-world projects.

There are three Practitioner Report sessions. Each session runs 90 minutes, and has three presentations of about 25 minutes each. There is an opportunity for questions at the end of each presentation. The session on Wednesday presents experiences of teams trying to be agile in their development practices. Thursday's session focuses on tough development problems and challenges and how they were handled. Friday's session presents three architecture experiences.
