DDJ Article Conclusion; Seminars in Germany and at OOPSLA

Part 2 of the article by Andrei Alexandrescu and me on double-checked locking is
now out in the current (August) issue of Dr. Dobbs Journal. If you're not a DDJ
subscriber, I believe that you can download a PDF copy of the magazine from If not, the full article (both parts) will be available at my web site
in mid-October. Check in with
at that time for links.

During the first week of October, I'll be giving seminars in Stuttgart and
Berlin. The Stuttgart seminars should be especially fun, because they're either
new and improved or just plain new. Briefly, here are the topics for Stuttgart:

- DESIGN PATTERNS, TEMPLATES, AND PBD. This will be a revision of my current
course on this topic to focus more on variations of well-known patterns instead
of on GOF patterns themselves.

- WHAT'S NEW IN EFFECTIVE C++? I'm working on the third edition of the book
now (a significant rewrite), and this brand new seminar will cover material new
to the third edition.

- BETTER SOFTWARE -- NO MATTER WHAT. A language-independent seminar on things
programmers can do to improve software quality. This includes my keyholes work
as well as a lot more. This will be a full-day version of a seminar that has
never been longer than a half-day before.

In Berlin, I'll be presenting my two-day STL seminar based on Effective STL.

At OOPSLA in late October, I'll be reprising BETTER SOFTWARE--NO MATTER WHAT.
OOPSLA attendees should benefit from the feedback I get from the world premiere
in Stuttgart :-)
