Object Oriented Design in the Wild

Presented by: Jessica Kerr of Monsanto

About the Presentation: When a master of object-oriented programming turns her hands to JavaScript, does her skill transfer?

About the Presenter: Jessica Kerr, better known as @jessitron, is a Scala developer at Monsanto. She speaks at programming conferences in North America and Europe, teaches custom git workshops, edits technical books for Artima, tweets, and blogs at
