OOPSLA is the premier gathering of professionals from industry and academia, all sharing their experiences with today's object technologies and its offshoots. OOPSLA appeals to practitioners, researchers, students, educators, and managers, all of whom discover a wealth of information and the chance to meet others with similar interests and varied experiences and knowledge.
You can mold your own OOPSLA experience, attending your choice of technical paper presentations, practitioner reports, expert panels, demonstrations, essays, lightning talks, formal and informal educator symposia, workshops, and diverse tutorials and certificate courses from world-class experts.

There will also be nearly 20 workshops at OOPSLA. They're fun! These workshops are highly interactive events, where groups of technologists meet to surface, discuss, and attempt to solve challenging problems. You learn a lot when you share your ideas and experiences with others in the field, and build relationships that are an essential part of the OOPSLA experience.
