Last July we offered a free seminar on using design patterns in Analysis.
Due to its popular reception we are offering it again.  While I am in town
to deliver a 1/2 day introduction to object-oriented design and a full two
day course on pattern oriented design, I will be taking the time to present
a 2.5 hour presentation in downtown Denver on Using Design Patterns in

·	what design patterns are
·	the strategy pattern
·	the abstract factory pattern
·	how to use design patterns in analysis to discover and manage variations -
the Analysis matrix
·	the bridge pattern (if time permits)

Summary: Design patterns are usually thought of as being limited to solving
local design/implementation problems.  However, they can be very useful in
analysis, once their true value is understood.  This seminar describes
design patterns from a perspective more consistent with Christopher
Alexander (the architect who first stated patterns existed) than with the
current software design pattern community.  Participants should understand
object-oriented design but need not have any experience in design patterns.

Time and Place: Tuesday, November 14, Executive Tower Hotel.  6:30-9:00 (we
may end a little early).

This seminar is free and open to the public but you must register as a
limited number of seats is available.  To register, send an e-mail to
info at netobjectives.com.  For each person being registered, include: e-mail
address, company name, and the registration code DDPW.

See more information on this seminar at:

Who should attend: developers and project managers who have at least a
minimal understanding of object-oriented technology.
