The Cndnsd Vrsn: ** 4:30pm** Tuesday January 27 ACS Rm 123 - Designing Distributed Object Systems with CORBA.
The design of distributed object systems introduces some subtleties that
are not found in conventional object-oriented design. The majority of
distributed system building is performed on an ad hoc basis, without
perhaps the pool of experience and heuristics available in other fields,
in languages in the form of idioms, and to object-oriented design in the
form of design patterns.
This talk introduces the CORBA model of distributed computing, focusing
on its history and future, IDL essentials and idioms, and some design
and architectural patterns that support the creation of more effective
distributed object systems.
The speaker, Kevlin Henney, is an object technology consultant, lecturer and course
manager with QA Training. He specialises in object-oriented design and
languages, which he has been applying over the last 8 years in
distributed, multi-threaded, real-time, GUI and engineering
applications. He is a member of the UK C++ standards committee and chair
of the UML/OMT User Group in the UK.
The next meeting of the Front Range UNIX Users Group will be in room 123 of the
CU Academic Computing Center building at Arapahoe and Marine Streets in Boulder.
Marine St intersects Arapahoe at 38th St; the Computing Center is on the southwest corner.
At the December meeting of the Front Range UNIX Users Group
Sunil Prakash, president of Global Software Focus, Inc. discussed internationalization and localization issues in application development.
