John Vlissides

I’m very sorry to hear that John Vlissides, GoF member and Software Engineering luminary, passed away last week after a long illness.

I had the pleasure of learning from John at OOPSLA 2004 in Vancouver. Like all great teachers, he could make the complicated apear obvious. (My notes on his lecture are here.)

I consider myself lucky to have met him.
