IAM of the University of Berne, the SCG and CHOOSE is proud to announce 
the talk of Prof. Ralph Johnson.

Title:  "Toward's an Architect's Handbook"

Ralph E. Johnson - University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

patterns writers in particular, are still far from an architect's 
This talk will explain the vision, what is missing, a few recent books 
in my opinion are big steps towards the goal, and what we should do to
fulfill our vision.
