This year I am speaking at JAOO. On Monday, September 25 I’ll be participating in a panel on the future of patterns with Markus Völter, Frank Buschmann, Kevlin Henney, and Klaus Marquardt. I know everybody on the panel and thus am looking forward to a lively and interesting discussion. If you’d be interested in participating but cannot make it please post questions as a comment below; I’ll add them to the questions from the audience. After the panel I will try to summarize the discussion here so stay tuned.
