On Saturday, I attended PLoP 2006, a separate conference being held in conjunction with OOPSLA this year. I participated in a writer's workshop that reviewed a couple of interesting pattern languages being developed. A lot of people at PLoP this year have never been to PLoP before; it's good to see so many new people getting involved.
On Sunday, I attended a workshop on EDA. We discussed several topics:
- SOA and EDA
- EDA patterns
- using EDA for monitoring and problem determination
- Glib, a runtime for transmitting events as objects (not XML)
Today, I'm attending a workshop on SOA and web services. I'll talk more about that tomorrow.
