Is OOP dead? Not by a long shot

Is Object Oriented Programming still worth the effort? Many seem to think it's not, but are they right? In this talk we're going to look at whether thinking in terms of Objects is still relevant in modern software development.

Speaker: Marco Troisi

Marco is a senior sofware engineer for Bluefin Payment Systems. He cares deeply about good design and keeping things simple. As a public speaker at many meetups and conferences in Ireland, where he lives, and as a writer for his own blog and other online publications, Marco's main areas of focus are software development/architecture, and productivity.
