What do you like from attending PLoP conference?
Meeting with John Crupi, Martin Fowler, Dick
Gabriel, Ralph Johnson, Linda Rising and many other
world renowned experts in software development, workshoping
in a nature inspired park, having fun with creative games
and activities? We'd like to hear from you! Send us
your short statements on what and why others should attend
the conference and we will gladly post it here.
"The PLoP conference
is an excellent venue to get
exposed to the practical use of patterns in OO
programming. Not only is it recognition of the use of
patterns but also an identification of patterns in
pattern use. Being an open and free environment it is
a great place to network and share ideas with some of
the most talented people in the OO programming
There is genius in simplicity as I always say and
George demonstrated that with is team building games.
His games where simple in nature but provided a means
for us to work together as a team in a very fun way.
I left this conference with a better understanding of
OO design, patterns of patterns, and a better gamer.
I would highly recommend this conference to anyone
wanting to further their skills in object-oriented technology."
