What's ooPSLA up to?
You might think that after 21 years there wouldn't be much left to explore about object oriented programming. Well, think again.
What's left to discover? Lots!
Like how to address today's software challenges. ooPSLA attracts attendees interested in this stuff:
- Programmer productivity
- Secure and reliable software
- Changing hardware platforms
- Ultra-large scale systems
ooPSLA is the premier conference for innovative and thought-provoking ideas, for seeking comment on works in progress, and (frequently, we're proud to say) for presenting Turing Award lecturers on significant works. It is where industry experts and their academic peers gather to:
- Improve programming languages
- Refine the practice of software development
- Explore new paradigms
What's going on
John McCarthy. Patti Maes. Gregor Kiczales. Fred Brooks. We all recognize these as the names of researchers who have made profound contributions to computing and software. They are also the headline speakers at this year's ooPSLA, where you'll hear what they are thinking about in 2007. ooPSLA invited talks have a well-deserved reputation for energizing software developers with ideas that stretch our collective mind.
Jim Purbrick and Mark Lentczner. You may not recognize these names, but you might know their alter egos: Babbage Linden and Zero Linden, of Linden Labs. They are the creators of Second Life, a 3D virtual world that is changing how we think about the real world, how we live in multiple worlds, and how we do business in the 21st century. Purbrick and Lentczner are the Onward! keynote speakers.
Peter Turchi. He is the director of the MFA Program for Writers at Warren Wilson College. You certainly don't recognize his name. Turchi is the award-winning author of Maps of the Imagination, an exploration of the relationships between creative writing, making maps, and creativity. He is our keynote speaker, and perhaps the most mind-bending of all our speakers.
That is just a sampling of what makes ooPSLA the conference of choice for software technologists—from recognized academics to undergraduate students, from industrial researchers to developers and managers, from the creators of technology to its users.
We are proud to offer you ooPSLA and look forward to sharing the experience with you in Montréal.
