Ice Cream Social (OOPSLA 2004 Kick-off)

Thursday, 30 October – 15:00-17:00

The Ice Cream Social serves as both the farewell event of OOPSLA 2003 and the kick-off event of OOPSLA 2004. It is also the setting for the DesignFest Wrap-up. Throughout the week, teams of software designers have taken part in the DesignFest sessions. In addition, a small number of student teams (known as CodeFest) have implemented some of these designs. The Ice Cream Social is a chance for OOPSLA participants, whether or not they participated in DesignFest, to see the designs produced during the earlier sessions, as well as to view demos of the final software. Designers will be available to discuss their experiences (both good and bad) of working in their design team, and the CodeFest teams will describe the problems they encountered while implementing the designs.
