Ben Alex spoke on the ROO framework on Wednesday 18 April.

ROO allows you to develop Real Object Oriented (ROO) systems, where the motto is "domain first, infrastructure second". If you're interested in domain driven design, proper encapsulation, and not having to write a lot of code to do it, this session will be of interest to you. Ben presented on this topic at The Spring Experience in Florida, and will feature extensive demos of the as-yet-unreleased ROO Framework. ROO is used at Woolworths Limited, and Ben will explain how Woolworths are using ROO in a number of production applications. This presentation will feature a lot of live demos and code, so sit back and enjoy!
