Wednesday, September 10, 2003
Location: Qwest Auditorium
Cost: Free. This event is open to the public.
Denver JUG is pleased to announce a SPECIAL SEPTEMBER MEETING featuring two main speakers. Basic Concepts will not be offered. Full details on the event can be found online at http://www.denverjug.org

5:30-6 p.m. Food, Networking, and Employment Opportunities. Qwest recruiters will be present to discuss openings.
6-7 p.m. Joseph Gradecki on "Aspect-Oriented Programming using Aspect J"

The JavaWorld editors believe: "Aspect-oriented programming is the next big thing, and will begin to show up in some form or another in many projects." In this special presentation, learn how AOP and AspectJ can be used along with your Java application to add functionality in a way that doesn't disrupt the OO paradigm.

Joseph Gradecki is a senior software developer working on enterprise-level securities processing systems. He has been using AspectJ since the beginning and has built numerous dynamic enterprise applications using Java, MySQL, servlets and other technologies. He is co-author of "Mastering AspectJ: Aspect-Oriented Programming in Java" and is the author of 4 other technology books.

7-7:15 p.m. Announcements
7:15-8:30 p.m. Grady Booch on "The Architecture of Unusual Things"
This special presentation explores the historical evolution of architecture and the emerging "agile" software development techniques that are forcing companies to rethink the traditional up-front design strategy. Known and sought after for his visionary perspectives and advice, Mr. Booch will conclude the evening with insights into the future and field questions from the audience. Come find out what other “unusual things” we can expect in 2004.
Grady Booch is known internationally for his innovative work on software architecture, modeling, and software engineering processes. He is one of the few leaders in the software industry to have his name used as part of the lexicon – "The Booch method" and "Booch clouds." In addition to being the author of 6 technology-based books, Mr. Booch co-developed the Unified Modeling Language and the software modeling tool, Rational Rose. He served as Chief Scientist of Rational Software Corporation from 1980 to 2003, when IBM purchased Rational. Mr. Booch was named as an IBM Fellow earlier this year.
