2002….. Can’t really figure out who the Jedi is here, perhaps it was Andy Hunt & Dave Thomas who came back for the third year in a row to do their Pragmatic show? In their show, they quoted Giga Information Group for the prediction that 2/3 of all corporate IT will be using an Agile [...]

Jim Coplien superstarred a talk on Agile Architecture – which turned out to be a whole new design paradigm. This has the JAOO crowd going – with activity popping up everywhere
So, I’m about 50% through the conference at this point, and I thought it would be nice with a retrospective at this point. Being at JAOO is beginning to grow on me. I feel quite comfortable with chatting to people, which was one of the harder bridges to cross. But it’s also good fun just [...]
An ultra-short note from “Clairvoyance for connoisseurs – Identifying Your Client’s Needs and Documenting the Same” by Chris Rupp:
“When acting as a software architect, don’t try to solve the business problems of your client”. In other words, stick to being the IT guy / girl and stay clear of business consulting.
This is one hard piece [...]
- Where are you from?
- What is you programming language of choice?
- What is your current language at work?
- What’s the best free stuff you’ve found so far?
Beyond the tangible things, the experience is an eye-opener, with many interesting expert opinions.
- What has been your most rewarding talk so far?
Failure Comes In Flavours.
- Which talk [...]
This year we will introduce a new thing at JAOO Århus; “Meet the Speakers”. After the last presentation (i.e. Wednesday 16.30 – 17.30) there will be an official conference ending from the stage in the exhibition area, and then we will have the speakers placed at different cafe tables available for questions.
This is an informal [...]
Wednesday is the last conference day at JAOO, so now is the time to select the best talks. These three will (perhaps) maximize your JAOO experience. But don’t come complaining if they don’t work for you.
First of all, if you missed James Copliens talk Tueday, he’ll do a rerun Wednesday at 10:30. Go see him [...]
All talks that Wednesday are planned for room 222 will be in C103.
Due to extreme popularity, James O. Coplien is doing his talk, Not your Grandfather’s Architecture: Taking Architecture into the Agile World, again. This will be Wednesday at 10:30 in room 222.
The JAOO Today Team has picked three winners in Monday’s comment competion.

Michael Lind Mortensen in the Cheapest Win category for his comment on JAOO, 1st day
Linda in the Sheer Volume category (example)
rynas in the Most Insightful category for his comment about Concurrency
The winners have been [...]
Hurray! It’s nice to see that at last someone has started using cheap tricks such as naked female bodies in the slides instead of resorting to the usual thoughtful dullness…
After hearing Copliens talk on agile architecture, I have now realized that I was all wrong. Java and C# are obviously toy languages, and I’ll be throwing out all of my code and start all over, preferrably in Fortran or Lisp.
Measured as ratio between green cards and all cards turned in for each talk, Monday’s most popular talk was Kaazing Gateway: An Open Source HTML 5 Websocket Server.
I missed the Java History and Outlook talk (it was crowded), so I went to Beautiful Software with Dr. Michele Lanza. It was a wild shot, but it turned out to be a good one. Lanza talked about his research project with visualizing code using some quite interesting tools. We’ve probably all tried generating a [...]
It seems that these are the times where every day on JAOO must begin with the sad sound of Kresten Thorup sighing “… this is embarassing“. Tuesday morning at the keynote, when Google’s Lars Bak went on stage to present the V8 engine of Chrome, something made the laptop containing the slides for Lars’ talk [...]« Previous Entries
