I hope I can post my question here. With OO being around some 30+ years, what can you say about its effect on quality of software written, or the future thereof in the emerging concurrent development and use? It there a clear trend visible?

Hello Dr. Meyer and the ACM team leading this webinar.

I’m working on a simulation intended to be a graph structure of objects connected by sockets in a cloud architecture. Our intent is to have subgraphs which operate asynchronously and in parallel to simply share information about state and allow migration of objects between subgraphs.

Do you have any thoughts on the parallel programming challenges that may occur with this kind of distributed graph of loosely coupled nodes? Our team is relying on Eiffel for this effort. Thanks - Brent Nolan
