Come find out what other “unusual things” we can expect in 2004. Grady Booch is known internationally for his innovative work on software architecture, modeling, and software engineering processes. He is one of the few leaders in the software industry to have his name used as part of the lexicon – "The Booch method" and "Booch clouds." In addition to being the author of 6 technology-based books, Mr. Booch co-developed the Unified Modeling Language and the software modeling tool, Rational Rose.
