I had enjoyed a prior talk by Gregor Kiczales for OOPSLA 2007. In 2008, he spoke less about his own research, and more about the OOPSLA direction.
Gregor Kiczales, Research Program Chair for OOPSLA 2008, discusses the all important research program this year.
One of the long lasting value of OOPSLA is that it allows leading edge researchers to mind melt with industry engineers and managers.
Gregor realizes this important aspect 🙂 and has led the selection of a fantastic research program that will surely continue this tradition.
