Object Thinking by David West

Book Description

In OBJECT THINKING, esteemed object technologist David West contends that the mindset makes the programmer-not the tools and techniques. Delving into the history, philosophy, and even politics of object-oriented programming, West reveals how the best programmers rely on analysis and conceptualization-on thinking-rather than formal process and methods. Both provocative and pragmatic, this book gives form to what's primarily been an oral tradition among the field's revolutionary thinkers-and it illustrates specific object-behavior practices that you can adopt for true object design and superior results. Gain an in-depth understanding of: * Prerequisites and principles of object thinking. * Object knowledge implicit in eXtreme Programming (XP) and Agile software development. * Object conceptualization and modeling. * Metaphors, vocabulary, and design for object development. Learn viable techniques for: * Decomposing complex domains in terms of objects. * Identifying object relationships, interactions, and constraints. * Relating object behavior to internal structure and implementation design. * Incorporating object thinking into XP and Agile practice.

Author Biography - David West

Dave West would like to describe himself as sheik geek. Unfortunately no one else would describe him in that way. They would say he is a professional Englishman who likes to talk about software development best practices with the passion and energy of an evangelical preacher. Recently Dave has moved to Ivar Jacobson Consulting, where he runs the Americas and can combine his desire to talk about software development and spread the word on rugby and football, and argue that cricket is more exciting that baseball. Before running the Americas for Ivar Jacobson Consulting, Dave worked for a number of years at Rational Software (now a part of IBM). Dave held many positions at Rational and then IBM, including Product Manager for RUP where he introduced the idea of process plug-ins and agility to RUP. Dave still laments the days when he use to sit in a cube and write software in the city of London. This is where he believes he cut his teeth writing big insurance systems with nothing but a green screen and a process flow chart. Dave can be contacted at dwest@ivarjacobson.com, and if he is not with customers or drinking warm beer with his friends in Boston, he will email you back.
