Object technology has been touted as being the answer to "reuse". In practice, it is more helpful to consider how to use other people's software and make your software useful and easy to use for others.

The goals of the workshop are to explore and learn: what makes software useful for developers? How does one find, evaluate, and integrate software? How can we make our software useful for other people?

This workshop is a Scrapheap Challenge for developers, using the Internet as the scrapheap. Participants will be given fun challenges to achieve and must construct solutions with software and services that they can find on the Internet. Each challenge will be small enough that a good solution can be written in less than an hour, but complex enough that participants will not be able to write everything from scratch.

The solutions to the challenges will address the questions posed.
