Take advantage of OOPSLA tutorials!
If you think you're too inexperienced, or too experienced!, to benefit from OOPSLA tutorials, please think again! OOPSLA gathers the world's finest educators covering the full breadth of classic and cutting-edge topics. Our presenters not only have world-class expertise, they're also successful presenters who know how to share their hard-won knowledge with you.
OOPSLA will provide 58 tutorials to choose from. It's a pity that the maximum that you can take is eight! Please take some time and carefully peruse the opportunities. The time you spend selecting your tutorials will certainly be repaid.
There are, of course, many strong tutorials on classic OOPSLA topics like patterns, agile methods, Eclipse, programming languages, and aspect oriented programming. There are tutorials on functional and object-oriented programming, even scripting. There are design patterns and organizational patterns. You can find requirements, testing, concurrency, modelling, programming techniques, libraries, data base, theory, educational topics, web services, and many others.
The special tutorials this year include two on Sunday by George Platts. His morning tutorial is in conjunction with Onward! and is primarily concerned with creativity. The second, Querdenking, will explore lateral thinking and how you might apply it to your work. Some of you know George, who is games-master at EuroPLoP and is an important contributor to the sense of community there.
We also have two tutorials on Wiki, including one on using Wikis in software development.
Look for the Intellectual Property tutorial on Wednesday, also.
