Rebecca Wirfs-Brock

is an internationally recognized leader in the development of object design methodologies. She invented the set of development practices known as Responsibility-Driven Design. Among her widely used innovations are use case conversations and object role stereotypes. She is the regular design columnist for IEEE Software and the author of the classic text, Designing Object-Oriented Software. Her most recent book, Object Design: Roles, Responsibilities and Collaborations, was published in 2002.

Rebecca has written numerous articles, lectured and presented tutorials on object analysis, design and management topics. Rebecca’s methodology contributions are based upon thirty years of hands-on software development experience. Most recently she has advised an engineering group on design and architecture for a large embedded application, been a major contributor to the design and architecture of a telecommunications framework, led the development of an online banking system, and mentored teams on use case writing, design, architecture, and managing incremental and iterative object-technology projects.
