January 12--Tamar Granor on Business Objects

Our next meeting will take place Tuesday, January 12, 2010. As usual, feel free to bring dinner and arrive as early as 6:30.

Tamar E. Granor will present "Getting Your Head Around Business Objects," previously seen at Southwest Fox 2009.

Abstract: For many years, we've heard that business objects are important, but most of the examples are tied too tightly to the user interface to really make the point. In this session, we use a highly graphical example to show how business objects can really improve your applications. We see how a well-designed set of business objects makes changing an application's behavior easier and keeps your application's functionality separate from its user interface.
