degrees from the University
of Toronto in 1969 and 1971 respectively
and his Ph.D. degree from the University of Waterloo in 1975 where he wrote a
thesis introducing "Regular Right Part Grammars". His current
research interests are associated with real-time 3D games. He has done
extensive consulting in object-oriented systems, particularly in areas related
to Smalltalk. He was the author of "The Smalltalk Column" in the
Journal of Object-Oriented Programming, co-author of two books, Inside
Smalltalk, Vols. 1 and 2, and Smalltalk/V: Practice and Experience, and sole
author of Discovering Smalltalk.
Last year's focus was on
real-time 3D games programming and support tools for building games. An early
course in this area was Comp
4002 (last given Winter '2011) and Comp 4501 (Winter
'2016). Some of the old JOOP articles materials are available in JOOP. This year's focus
involves Comp 3002.
