Whew! It's been quite a while since I last blogged and it's been because I've been participating in some very exciting things related to Software Factories.
I've had the amazing opportunity for most of the past 3 weeks (with a short break for the Applied XML DevCon.... more on that in a future post) working with Jack Greenfield, Keith Short and Steve Cook on a full-day tutorial on Software Factories that we presented Monday at OOPSLA 2004.
While it's not ready for general use for some time to come, what we did was build what was essentially the world's first instance of a Software Factory.
In addition, it's been quite a rush to hang out with Harry Pierson (who provides a preview/review of our tutorial), Stuart Kent and all the other MS and non-MS attendees.
As the conference is still under way (and I'm still recovering from the sleep loss involved in preparing the tutorial!!) I'll close with....
...Stay tuned for the next exciting installment
