Stephen Downes writes about a presentation by Scott Wilson:
Scott Wilson writes the kind of presentation that makes you feel like you’ve just spent an evening drinking beer with him as he effortlessly weaves through complex subjects dispelling both myths and confusion. As a case in point, his opening describing the many ways to achieve integration is both humorous and informative. And I support this: ‘Frameworks must be based on practical experience, must evolve in response to experiences and reflection, must support partial implementation and not require complete adoption of the whole framework to achieve anything, must not mandate a single development environment (e.g.Java) and must support a range of implementation patterns and as wide a variety of designs as possible.’ Don’t miss this.
I’ve seen a lot of interesting and useful material from Scott Wilson recently. This PowerPoint presentation is well worth a look. It is one of several potentially interesting presentations at IDEA.
