Speaker: Stephen Wolbers

  The change in software language and methodology by CDF and D0 to object-oriented from procedural Fortran is significant. Both experiments requested dedicated expertise that could be applied to software design, coding, advice and review. Our outside review panel agreed strongly with the request and recommended that the Fermilab Computing Division hire dedicated OO expertise for the CDF/D0/Computing Division joint project effort.
  This was done and the two experts have been an invaluable addition to the CDF and D0 upgrade software projects and to the Computing Division in general. These experts have fertilized common approaches and increased the overall quality of the upgrade software. Advice on OO techniques as well as specific advice on C++ coding has been used in some cases. Recently a set of software reviews has been accomplished. This has been a very successful instance of targetted application of computing expertise, and constitutes a very interesting study of how to move toward modern computing methodologies in HEP.
