Greater Wisconsin Software Symposium
February 24 - 26, 2006 - Milwaukee, WI
Myths and Realities of AOP
Aspect-oriented programming (AOP) promises to modularize crosscutting concerns. Like all new technologies, AOP has its share of over zealousness and unjustified criticism, neither of which is useful to developers deciding if they should use AOP in their applications. Attend this talk to understand the real deal behind AOP and change your perspective of AOP forever.
This talk goes beyond myths surrounding AOP and shows the real deal. It examines many practical applications implemented with and without aspects, providing a context for scrutinizing AOP. It also discusses ways to adopt AOP in pragmatic, risk-managed ways allowing developers to try AOP in their own system and gain understanding at the experiential level without exposing them to undue risk.
This session is aimed at developers who have some understanding of AOP, perhaps even considering using it in their system, but have some lingering concerns about its practicality. After attending the session, you will have a clear picture of AOP and be ready to make a studied decision about it.
