OOSD's current membership of 862 is just slightly lower than last year's membership number; however, it is consistent with membership numbers of the past several years and represents a significant percentage of out-of-state members.
While attendance at the joint reception by out-of-state members was not as high as expected, the OOSD was honored to have a local Florida Bar member who currently serves as the Assistant to the Comptroller for Public Finance for the Tennessee Comptroller of the Treasury present at its executive council meeting.
OOSD is a skill valued by employers of IS professionals and, as a result, is a cornerstone course offering of many university- and college-level technology-based business degrees (Hall, Cegielski and Wade, 2006).
In order to facilitate testing of the model, it was necessary to develop appropriately broad task performance measures for OOSD. A review of the literature produced 24 articles published between 1971 and 2008 that reported dependent variables related to computer programming skills and ability.
OOSD clearly has parallels to manufacturing, and these similarities facilitate the application of lean techniques.
OOSD incorporates the concept of information encapsulation, an important step from structured programming.
MY IMPRESSIONS OF OOSD ARE very different from those in Johnson's survey ("The Ups and Downs of Object-Oriented Systems Development," Oct.
With my Windows OOSD experience, internal to a project, much of the code sharing would occur easily without the OO features.
The OOSD mission is to serve the varied needs of the Bar's out-of-state members.
Unfortunately, the OOSD had to reschedule its normal fall meeting with The Florida Bar Board of Governors in Boston, Massachusetts, due to the devastation of Hurricane Irma.
In March 2017, the OOSD
executive council met in Dallas, Texas, in conjunction with the Young Lawyer Division (YLD) Board of Governors.
Many well-known software development practitioners [2, 3, 7, 11] are convinced that OOSD
delivers distinct advantages over conventional systems development, including easier modeling, more code and model reuse, better system quality, and easier maintenance.
