OOPSLA 2006 Day 2

It’s the time of the year when the big names come together to discuss what’s new in the world of object oriented programming, it’s that time of the year when we get to learn bout cool stuff, it’s time for OOPSLA. The beautiful city of Portland plays host to this years edition, and me put up with my friend who goes to at PDX.

8:00AM – 12:00 PM – Ajax: Introduction and Architecture
12:00-15:00 – I am currently floating as a student volunteer
13:30PM – 17:30PM – Making the Most of Eclipse

Stuart Halloway gave a kickass presentation on AJAX, with code examples, architectural desicions and why we should be using rails and prototype or using dojo and going the JAVA way.

neat stuff!

I’m of to the Eclipse tutorial now……

Update: Olaf Zimmerman gave a super cool presentation on using webservices in J2EE using Eclipse 3.1 and the Web Tools Platform. I forsee a huge market surge in the Java side of web services with IBM pumping money into it. There is a commercial product RAD but then you can use Apache Tomcat and Axis, along with Eclipse and WTP. The future is Web services, the future is SOA…….
