Monday October 22, 8:30am-5:00pm
Location: OOPSLA '07 Conference in Montreal, Canada
This is the website for the OOPSLA retrospective workshop -- a
discussion of the issues in Frederick P. Brooks' 1987 article
No Silver Bullet.
What if we had a chance to rewrite Brooks' article today?
What have we learned about effective software development
techniques over the last 20 years?
Do we have some experiences that reinforce Brooks' thesis?
This workshop will be a working session -- to identify the
areas of reality and fiction in the Brooks article, and to develop
the outline of an "updated edition" of No Silver Bullet.
