Our very own (as in techwr-l, not Lotus) Susan Gallagher gave two excellent
presentations about understanding and documenting object-oriented programming
and APIs. It was like taking an OO Berlitz course - I got just enough
information to be functional in a strange country where I don't speak the
language(s). :-) And, like a good Berlitz course, I learned *useful* terminology
(like be able to say "where is the bathroom?" instead of "My car is green.").
Susan's engaging, well-paced, and humourous presentation style didn't hurt,
