Panelists: Jayantha Obeysekera. Ph.D. PE. SFWMID.

Todd S. Tisdale. SFWMD, Supervising Professional.
The session will involve the discussion of object-oriented technology
which allows further advancement in software development by
building on the strengths of previous work in programming
languages and databases Object-orientation has had a long history
as an accepted approach to program development and has advanced
within the Information Sciences community. The primary advantage
of this technology is the ability to fit a single framework over a large
range of activities that formerly required the use of a venty of tool
sets. Other benefits include productivity improvements, higher
quality applications, simplified maintenance, and the abihty to
handle complex data and cope with changing requirements.
