 THIS MONTH'S MEETING
 ====================
 Sponsor: WiseSoft, Shanthi Kumar V
 Program Director: Paul Stachour, Net Perceptions
 Topic: Measuring Programming Language Effectiveness
 Speaker: Paul Stachour
 ---------------------------------------------------

 ABSTRACT
 --------
 We often speak of the effectiveness of a particular
 programming language.  However, we seldom measure that
 effectiveness.  One of the more complete studies of the
 effectiveness of programming languages was performed
 by Rational Software.  During the due-diligence process
 when Rational merging with Verdix, records were examined
 to determine the value of the two companies, but also to
 judge the best technologies and methodologies to contine
 into the future of the merged company.  During that
 process, the extensive and complete update records of the
 Verdix Ada development showed that there might be
 quantative bases for comparing the success of two
 languages, C and Ada, under the fairest conditions.

 The month's presentation will examine and discuss that
 document (available on the web), which is entitled
 "Comparing the Development Costs of C and Ada."

 In addition to the report, individual data which has been
 collected from various organizations will be presented.
 Opportunity will be provided to discuss this, or similar
 data.  All attendees are challenged to bring any
 measureable, sharable, results which they possess about
 the effectiveness of any particular language, and to share
 that information with the group.

 SPEAKER
 -------
 Paul Stachour is the Software Quality Manager at a local
 company building software for the internet.  While a member
 of the PL/S compiler group at IBM in 1970-1974, he observed
 a number of effects on quality and productivity based on
 language features and usage.  Paul has been interested in
 what makes software "quality software" ever since.  In
 particular, he is interested in what languages, features,
 tools, and processes prevent defects.  Paul is the current
 president of TCSIGAda.

 Meeting Directions
 ==================
 Dunwoody Institute is located at 818 Dunwoody Blvd in Minneapolis.
 It is located at the intersection of Dunwoody and Lyndale Ave,
 just north of the point where Hennepin and Lyndale come together.
 The Institute is on the north side of Dunwoody.  The entrance to
 the parking lot is from Dunwoody and the building entrance is very
 visible (large blue sign) from the parking lot.

 - If you are coming from downtown Minneapolis use Hennepin Ave.
 Follow Hennepin to the Lyndale intersection, cross Lyndale to
 Dunwoody, and turn right into the Institute parking lot.
 - If you are coming north on Lyndale/Hennepin stay on Hennepin
 and turn left at the cathedral.  At the next light (Lyndale) go
 straight -- you are now on Dunwoody Blvd.  Turn right into the
 parking lot.
 - There is also a Dunwoody exit from 394 East.  After exiting on
 Dunwoody at the first light turn left into the Institute parking
 lot.
 - If you are coming from 94 West take the Lyndale/Hennepin Ave
 exit and follow Hennepin North, turn left at the cathedral.  At
 the next light (Lyndale) go straight -- you are now on Dunwoody
 Blvd.  Turn right into the parking lot.
 - Please contact Jesse if you need additional directions.


 Thanks, and we look forward to seeing you at our next meeting!
