Two years back at the WoTUG conference, I presented a few
handwritten slides on combining OO and CSP. These days, I
think the following:
- CSP is a very good form of object orientation
(Peter Welch has already said this many times.)
- I think many OO practices are fundamentally not
true OO. I think CSP is true OO.
- Mixing CSP with bad OO practices is persuasive,
but intrinsically wrong.
- I have (strong) doubts whether the direction John suggests
is the right one at all.
