From WICSA Conference Wiki
I'm Jason Smith, a recent (as of two weeks ago) doctorate graduate from the Computer Science department at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. My research has been in the automated detection of design patterns directly from source code in the SPQR project, under the advisement of Dr. David Stotts. During this time, I've also been involved in co-inventing the Facetop distributed video interface system for allowing, among other things, enhanced distributed pair programming, and I was a consultant with the US Environmental Protection Agency on their MIMS project. Before my work at UNC, I was a software engineer at Evans & Sutherland where I worked on military flight simulators.
I am here to investigate and discuss the opportunities for expanding SPQR into the architectural patterns realm, now that the design pattern literature has proven to be manageable and practical. I am looking forward to input and discussions from the architecture community here at WICSA and WCRE. Please feel free to introduce yourself in the halls if you see me, I'm the tall long-haired redhead in the green jacket.
