Software-intensive systems can amplify human intelligence, but they cannot replace human judgment. Software-intensive systems can fuse, coordinate, classify, and analyze information, but they cannot create knowledge. Given this, how do we decide what systems to build, and how to construct and deploy them?
Join us to hear insights from Grady Booch, a widely respected figure in the development of object oriented programming (OOP). Recognized internationally for his innovative work on software architecture, modeling, and the software engineering process, Booch has been chief scientist at Rational Software since the company's founding in 1980. He is the author of six best-selling books, including "Object-Oriented Analysis and Design with Applications".
