Hi Folks,

I've been meaning to create this group and finally took some time to do so.  

Tomorrow (June 1st, 2010) I'll be giving a talk called System Metaphor Revisited: The Lost XP Practice.

It will be the second time I give the talk and I've got even better code examples to show, based on the music metaphor we continue to use in our eLearning software. 

The notes for the talk are in an emerging online album I've been creating with Brian Foote.  If you'd like to see that album, please register on our site (https://elearning.industriallogic.com/gh/submit?Action=ShowLoginPageAction) using your real email address (we will never spam you).  

I decided to call this group Software Metaphor, rather than System Metaphor, because we see metaphor being used in very small and very large parts of software design.

I'm looking forward to our dialogues here.

best regards,

Hi!

I think that is a great and relevant discussion.

In general, people don't give much importance to the metaphor XP
practice.

It is possible to share the presentation slides or a presentation
video here in the group?

Thanks!

Eduardo Guerra

Hi Eduardo, 

To get free access to the System Metaphor album, just email sup...@industriallogic.com and ask for the access to it.   We'll have an easier way at some point.
