Grady Booch

Organizers are delighted to announce that world-renowned computer scientist Grady Booch will deliver a keynote address at the first annual OpenSimulator Community Conference.  Grady’s keynote address, entitled My Virtual Life, will reflect on a quote from Joseph Campbell, who observed that, “One has to know how and when to put on and to put off the masks of one’s various life roles.”

Grady is internationally recognized for his innovative work in software architecture, software engineering, and modeling, and is perhaps best known for developing the Unified Modeling Language (UML) with Ivar Jacobson and James Rumbaugh and helping originate the term and practice of object-oriented programming and design.  An IBM Fellow, ACM Fellow, IEEE Fellow, and recipient of the BCS Lovelace Medal and Turing Lecture, Grady is the author of numerous best-selling books and technical papers, including the UML Users Guide and the seminal Object-Oriented Analysis with Applications.
