Practitioner Reports

Chair: Robert Biddle, Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada

Practitioner Reports are an integral part of the OOPSLA technical program. These reports provides a large group of peers the opportunity to learn from a project's experience applying software technologies or related practices. For many OOPSLA attendees, these reports are the most important part of the conference.

Practitioner reports explore how concepts that sound good on paper (and at conferences!) work on real projects. They are a valuable means of communicating experiences, especially at the "bleeding edge". Many attendees want to find out what it is like to adopt a new language, use new engineering methods, integrate commercial software, develop web services applications, develop frameworks, use design patterns, etc. Expectations, beliefs, and hopes can be validated, or dashed, by the experience that is reported.

OOPSLA practitioner reports present experience and reflections, together with supporting evidence for any claims made. And they particularly include reports that discuss both benefits and drawbacks of the approaches used. Reports may focus on a particular aspect of technology usage and practice, or describe broad project experiences. Some reports also focus on people, process or development challenges.
