Apologies if you already saw this announcement [1] elsewhere. At the next
UniForum Robert Martin of Object Mentor and author [2] will be talking
about Patterns, Principles and Practices in software development. I got
to see Martin talk last year at a different venue, about testing and
agile methods. He was a really good speaker, and had lots of interesting
ideas and observations about software development. This talk looks like
it's going to be good as well..

Principles, Patterns, and Practices -- A decade of progress.

Based upon the Jolt Award Winning book. The last ten years have seen remarkable
progress in software development technology. This progress includes design
principles, design patterns, and agile practices. This keynote summarizes and
integrates these areas of progress, describes some of the accomplishments and
failures, and then looks to what might be next.
