You may recall some of my haranguing on the need to do on-the-ground study (a la Jane Jacobs) of patterns in cities, in addition to the 100,000 foot views that we get from economic statistics. A colleague in the UK familiar with my passion over this sent me a terrific link to a deck that makes this point. The context for this is a new Wiki-based tool for collaborative scenario development, which also seems like a useful addition.
One thought on “Frontiers in Pattern Languages”
Interesting links – I agree with the focus on domain specific languages here and the open wiki-style of collaborative development seems promising.
(There is a reference to object-oriented programming (OOP) in the talk which I think is misplaced. Modern functional programming languages are better suited for capturing “patterns” than OOP.)
