It has been 30 years since Structured Design first evolved. The Software Engineering Institute's website [March ] describes Structured Design as a "traditional approach" that does not lend itself well to object orientation.
This panel brings together software design visionaries to discuss and debate "echoes" in software practice. Between and Steven was an independent consultant.
In he spent a year as a Visiting Scientist at the Software Engineering Institute SEI collaborating with the Application of Software Models project on the development of team-based domain analysis techniques. Steven is an avid operatunist and videographer.
With Ward Cunningham he wrote HotDraw, a widely copied drawing editor framework, pioneered patterns for software development, and popularized CRC cards.

He lives in rural Oregon on a 20 acre farm with a dwindling but still impressive gaggle of children, his lovely wife Cindee, and a flock of chickens. He has published several hundred technical articles on software engineering, including papers published in the early '80s that originated the term and practice of object-oriented design.
Booch received his bachelor of science from the United States Air Force Academy in and his master of science in electrical engineering from the University of California at Santa Barbara in He is the originator of such widely used models as dataflow diagrams. He devised one of the first notations for modeling the architecture of software and introduced notational conventions ultimately reflected in modern object modeling techniques.
He invented the metrics of coupling and cohesion and the underlying theory of program complexity on which they are based.
Much more than documents.
In recent years his attention has turned to interaction design and techniques for enhancing user performance. He is himself an award-winning designer with patents in human-machine interaction to his credit.
With Lucy Lockwood, he invented essential use cases, regarded by many as a best practice in user requirements modeling, along with usage-centered design, the widely practiced model-driven process based on them. He has published more than papers and 17 books in both the human sciences and information sciences, including the classic text, Structured Design, written with Ed Yourdon. His papers have been widely reprinted and his books have been translated into nine languages.
In wide demand as a presenter and teacher, he has taught in 18 countries and has keynoted numerous international conferences. More recently, he has become involved in the application of method engineering concepts to agent-oriented methodology construction.
Steve is the author of Code Complete , and Rapid Development , both winners of Software Development magazine's Jolt award for outstanding software development books of their respective years. Steve has worked in the desktop software industry since and has expertise in rapid development methodologies, project estimation, software construction practices, performance tuning, system integration, and third-party contract management.
Steve earned a master's degree in software engineering from Seattle University and a bachelor's degree from Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington.
Rebecca has been involved with object technology since its infancy. Among her widely used inventions are use case conversations and object role stereotypes. From development on the Tektronix implementation of Smalltalk in the early 's, through years of development and training experience, she is recognized as an innovative and influential practitioner of object-oriented design.
His latest book, 'Outsource: Com? During his career, he has worked on over 25 different mainframe computers and was involved in a number of pioneering computer technologies, such as time-sharing operating systems and virtual memory systems.
Edward Nash Yourdon
Yourdon is the author of over technical articles; he has also written 27 computer-related books since In addition to serving on the Board of Directors of iGate Capital Corp, and India-based Mascot Systems Corp, Yourdon also served on the Defense Department's Airlie Council, an advisory group that focused on finding "best practice" guidelines and techniques for large, complex projects throughout the s.
Yourdon was an advisor to Technology Transfer's research project on software industry opportunities in the former Soviet Union, and a member of the expert advisory panel on I-CASE acquisition for the U. Department of Defense.
Ed Yourdon received a B.
