Rebecca Wirfs-Brock

Rebecca Wirfs-Brock, president of Wirfs-Brock Associates, is an internationally recognized leader in the development of object design methodologies, and past design columnist for IEEE Software. She is the lead author of two design books, and she invented the set of development practices known as responsibility-driven design. Among her widely used innovations are the conversational use-case form and object role stereotypes.

Although best known as a software design guru, Rebecca is also an innovator of techniques for simply expressing complex requirements and effectively designing and communicating software architecture. She frequently helps product engineering, IT, and startup organizations with the technical bits, as well as with effective teamwork and agile development practices.
