The lightning talks went well, everyone was reasonably happy to sit through the presentations and I’m hoping people took away some nuggets of information that will help them divulge deeper.
My talk spawned a small drinking game (although with mimed drinks) from James. A drink for every time I said “model”. For an 8-10 minute talk there were a number of mimed sips.
But it was important that people take away at least the fact that “M” is for Model. Made me feel a bit like I was doing a public access TV show. I should have had a big bird outfit on.
I really would advise anyone who still feels they don’t get OSLO to not loose heart. It’s a complex philosophy with a currently very simplistic (on the surface) implementation. Read up on Domain Driven Development and Model Driven Development and see the benefits they purport. Then check out the OSLO presentations from the PDC.
I’m hoping to do a number of other talks on OSLO itself, and will be especially excited once Quadrant makes an appearance in the wild as without this part of the toolkit the framework is more about the ideas than the practical uses.
