A number of recent developments in software engineering – scripting languages, aspect-oriented programming, agile methods, design patterns, pluggable type systems – share a number of common attributes. These developments avoid a unifying theme or plan, focus on negotiation between different concerns, and exhibit a high level of context sensitivity. We argue that these developments are evidence of a postmodern turn in software engineering. In this talk, we’ll survey a number of these developments and describe their potential implications for the practice of software engineering.
