Ttile: Round Trip in GLORP
Speaker: Niall Ross
Thu, August 21, 11:30am – 12:00pm
This talk refactors the application of the earlier tutorial to use more advanced Glorp techniques. These refactorings are shown in the context of Modelling/Mapping tools (from Cincom ObjectStudio), database drivers and web techniques, to demo end-to-end development.
Niall Ross ended his undergraduate career with two intellectual interests: computing and the theory of relativity. A quick check of how much commercial work was available to relativity and gravitation theorists decided him to do academic research in that field and then seek a commercial job in computing, rather than the other way round. Niall started working commercially in IT in 1985. He was at first assigned to designing and implementing software engineering process improvements and only three years later did he begin significant writing and delivering of commercial software. This experience taught him that intelligent people can nevertheless form foolish ideas about software engineering if they have not worked at the coding coalface of real large commercial projects.
