Presenter: Bruce Johnson from CapeSoft


From Bruce:

In 1998 I investigated classes in Clarion, and fell in love almost immediately. So much so that I wrote a book and travelled the world training on it. But Interfaces, a cousin of classes, didn't really grab me, and I didn't find a genuine use case for them. Until now...

During this session I'll write a simple class, which contains an Interface, and show how the Interface adds real value to what the class is doing. And the example is anything but contrived, indeed it's something a number of our tools will soon make use of so the result of the session (named GUTS) will be released as a free accessory for anyone to inspect, use or build upon.
