DCI: Re-thinking the foundations of object orientation and of programming
Sometime in the last 40 years, object-oriented programming got lost.
Instead of producing code that can be understood by reading, it
produces code that can be explored only by tests. In this talk, recorded at Øredev 2009, Trygve Reenskaug, the
inventor of the DCI (Data, Collaborations, and Interactions)
architecture will describe its motivations and origins: how it can
produce source code that maps directly from end user mental models,
making it easier to understand and evolve.
This talk is the first of three in an Øredev series.
