Description

This article is from the Object-Oriented Technology FAQ, by Bob Hathaway rjh@geodesic.com with numerous contributions by others.

9.2) Appendix A VIPS (Object-Oriented Technology)

These are individuals whose names appear in comp.object most often.
Please send recommendations for *major* VIPS often cited or referenced.

Booch, Grady <egb@rational.com>
-------------------------------

Grady Booch has been an object- based/oriented advocate for some time. He's
written books such as Software Engineering with Ada [Booch 87], Software
Components with Ada [Booch 87b], and OOA/D with Applications [Booch 91, 94].
His latest notations are often referred to as simply the "Booch" method or
notation and he is Chief Scientist at Rational, a company providing training
and automated support for the method with a tool named "Rose" (See Appendix D).
The Booch method now incorporates many modern methods, including OMT, and Dr.
Rumbaugh has recently joined forces with Grady at Rational.

Cox, Brad
---------

Founder of Objective-C, which grafts the Smalltalk facilities of an
Object id and a messaging mechanism onto C. Author of [Cox 87].

Goldberg, Adele (Alan Kay, Dan Ingalls)
----------------------------------------

One of the founders of Smalltalk (with Alan Kay and Dan Ingalls). Coauthor
of [Goldberg 83, ??], "Smalltalk-80 The Language and its Implementation".
Smalltalk was invented by a group at Xerox PARC; and a spinoff, ParcPlace, is
now marketing Smalltalk environments (see APPENDIX C).

Meyer, Bertrand <bertrand@eiffel.com>
-------------------------------------

Founder of Eiffel, author of [Meyer 88]. Often posts to comp.lang.eiffel
and comp.object [what a FAQ writer notices]. His company, Interactive
Software Engineering, has a case tool called EiffelCase (see APPENDIX D).

Nygaard, Kristen (and Dahl, Ole-Johan)
--------------------------------------

Inventor of Simula, the first object-oriented programming language. Also
inventor of object oriented design, for which Simula-67 was considered an
implementation technique. Now B.B. Kristensen, O.L. Madsen, B. Moller-
Pedersen, and K. Nygaard are working on BETA, their successor to Simula.

Rumbaugh, Dr. James
-------------------

Part of Rumbaugh, Blaha, Premerlani, Eddy and Lorenson, the authors of
[Rumbaugh 91]. They all work for GE Corporate Research and Development Center
in Schenectady New York (See below) and have an OOA/OOD notation/methodology
called the "Object Modeling Technique" (OMT). It is a rather formal and
complete method often discussed in comp.object. OMTool is the name of the
CASE system provided by Martin Marietta which supports OMT. See APPENDIX D.

Recently, Dr. Rumbaugh has joined forces with Chief Scientist Grady Booch at
Rational: Rumbaugh@rational.com

Shlaer, Sally (and Mellor, Stephen J.)
--------------------------------------

>Sally Shlaer sally@projtech.com
>Project Technology Training and Consulting using Shlaer-Mellor OOA/RD
>Berkeley, CA (510) 845 1484
Also: steve@projtech.com

Cofounder of the Shlaer/Mellor OOA/RD method, president of Project Technology.
As shown above, occasionally posts to comp.object [what a FAQ writer notices].

Stroustrup, Bjarne (bs@alice.att.com)
-------------------------------------

Inventor of C++, a C superset, which has probably gained the most widespread
use of any object-oriented language today. Often found in comp.lang.c++ and
comp.object.
