AOP courses in Vancouver, and in Europe.

I previously wrote about the AOP course that's coming up in Vancouver this September. Registration for the course is now open - see the course web site for details.

If you can't get to Vancouver, then there's now going to be a Europe-based offering too, to be held in Munich on the 4th-5th October. Early details are available on the AspectMentor site.

Gregor put together a great little section on "Industry and Press Trends on AOP" as part of that site, which I've reproduced here since it contains a lot of useful links in a very short space:

Industry and Press Trends on AOP

(from the AspectMentor site)

Aspect-oriented programming (AOP) is changing the way applications are developed. AOP increases the quality and value of your software design and implementation.

AOP is getting increased industry and press attention, and has been identified as a "vital for our survival" by IBM V.P. Daniel Sabbah [1] [2] [3] [4].

In addition to IBM, BEA, and JBoss are supporting AOP in their products [5] [6].

Chief Software Architect Bill Gates recently said that Microsoft will adopt AOP. [7]

AOP is a hot topic at developer conferences these days. At the recent JavaOne conference, the AOP panel session - featuring James Gosling and Graham Hamilton of SUN, Cedric Beust of BEA, and Gregor Kiczales - filled both its main room and its overflow room.[8] At the Server Side Java Symposium, the AOP sessions were tied with the EJB 3.0 sessions for attendance.

AOP was named by MIT Technology Review as one of the "ten emerging areas of technology that will soon have a profound impact on the economy and on how we live and work" [9].
