Applying antipatterns to control development and maintenance, starts with identifying such elements. Given the volume of code, it is relatively difficult to manually find these artifacts. CodeSWAT propose a method to identify antipatterns in Java using software metrics. As software metrics are quality attributes of code (Java) elements, some metrics with a given threshold can identify the symptoms of an antipattern in those Java elements. Lets study how this can be accomplished, here we understand some development antipatterns with Java perspective and formulate an equation to find these antipatterns using automated software metrics.

The talk itself covers the past, present, and future of computing as of 1989. While the former two can be interesting to the high-tech historian, the real star is Bill Gates' prediction of computing yet to come.

All in all, a fascinating talk from, it seems, one of the most powerful speakers in CS and IT."
