What : Object orientation orientation
Date : Mon 13 September 2010
Time : 7 PM to 9 PM
Where: Room 301, Morse Hall, UNH, Durham, NH

  This month, SLUG will be looking at object oriented programming.[1]
We all know OO, right?  Everything's OO these days.  Old news.  Okay,
pop quiz, hot shot: What's an accessor?  What are the distinctions
between a class, an object, and an instance?  What do Protected,
Public, Interface, and Implements mean?  If you finding you're as
fuzzy on the details as I am, drop in on the SLUG and get a quick
orientation lesson in object orientation.

  Rob will use Python, Zope, and/or Twisted as demonstration material,
since those are what made him realize this terminology stuff is often
overlooked.

  Maybe we will finally find out the answer to that eternal question:
“What is a protected abstract virtual base pure virtual private
destructor?"[2]

[1] Unless, as he puts it, Rob comes up with a better idea before then.
[2] Old joke about C++, commonly attributed to Tom Cargill
