Effective Object Orientation by James Duncan Davidson
Object Oriented Programming is a Wonderland of sorts: The rabbit hole is
very much deeper than it looks and it is easy to get lost in the details.
Fortunately, the history of OOP, including the original Smalltalk language,
provides many solutions to problems that continue to be encountered today.
This presentation explores some important Object Oriented techniques,
inspired by some of the lesser-known Object Oriented languages, in a way
that can be applied to currently used systems.
Bio: James Duncan Davis is a freelance author, software developer, and
consultant focusing on Mac OS X, Java, XML, and Open Source technologies. He
created Apache Tomcat and Apache Ant and was instrumental in their donation
to the Apache Software Foundation by Sun Microsystems. While at Sun he lead
the expert groups for two versions of the Java Servlet API and served as one
of the architects of the J2EE platform. He is the author of Learning Cocoa
with Objective-C, co-author of Cocoa in a Nutshell, and a contributor to Mac
OS X Hacks (all published by O'Reilly and Associates) and publisher of his
own website, x180.
