About the conference

SPLASH is home to OOPSLA, Onward! and DLS. OOPSLA is the forum for many important software developments of the last few decades: CRC cards, CLOS, design patterns, Agile, SOA, Wikis, UML, TDD, refactoring, Java, and Aspects. Onward! is about programming and software: processes, methods, languages, communities, and applications. DLS addresses dynamic languages: their implementation and application.
