The Analysis Patterns Group
Next Meeting: See Agenda Below Location: Space Untitled Time: 7:00 - 9:00 PM Questions? email Ari or JoshuaThe Analysis Cycle Begins... The AP Group, the latest group to form within the DPSG, is devoted to the study of analysis patterns from Martin Fowler's book, Analysis Patterns: Reusable Object Models.
Like all groups within the DPSG, this group meets weekly to study and master analysis patterns.
When the group finishes studying Martin's book, the cycle will repeat so that others in the community may have a chance to study this important book.
This AP group is not only about analysis patterns, it is also about the process of transitioning from being a developer to being an architect. We plan to thoroughly discuss and understand Martin's book, which aims to give people knowledge of expert modeling techniques, by providing templates for building actual business models.
As we work our way through the book, we'll examine real-world examples and convert Fowler's models to UML (he actually requested that this be done!). By reinterpreting his models via the "standard" notation, some of the concepts he intended to convey may become clearer to us. We will provide Martin with continual feedback via the DPSG mailing list, and we may even have him attend one of our meetings (and/or a post-meeting get-together at a local bar)!
We will also try to bring other issues of systems architecture into the discussions, including transactioning, tiering, performance, costing, and more.
Like all groups within the DPSG, this groups is based around quality dialogues between people. Everyone's input is invited. For late-breaking announcements, check the DPSG mailing list.
