|OOPSLA 2008 is the 23rd annual international conference on Object-Oriented Programming, Systems, Languages, and Applications, sponsored by the ACM (Association for Computing Machinery). It'll be held October 19-23 in Nashville, Tennessee, USA. OOPSLA is the place where many great techniques have gotten started, such as: Patterns, Aspect Oriented Programming, Extreme Programming XP, Unit testing, UML, Wikis, and Refactoring.|
Registration for OOPSLA 2008 is now open.
I will be presenting a tutorial at OOPSLA: "Exploring IBM SOA Technology & Practice." The tutorial will be an update of my book by the same name: Exploring IBM SOA Technology & Practice (which is recommended by, among others, Don Ferguson).
If you need even more reasons to attend, here are some other conference highlights that look promising:
- Service Component Architecture - A Simpler Architecture for SOAs by Doug Tidwell
- Performance Pitfalls in Large-Scale Java Applications Translated from COBOL by the IBM Tokyo Research Lab
- Web, Services, and Web services, a panel with Kyle Brown
- Building Memory-Efficient Java Applications by Gary Sevitsky from the IBM TJ Watson Research Center
- Designed as Designer by Richard Gabriel
- Building SOAs with Web Services by Olaf Zimmermann
- Web APIs on Rails: using Ruby on Rails for Web APIs development and mashups by E. Michael Max Maximilien
So, lots to do. Please come join in.
