EuroPLoP (the European conference on Pattern Languages of Programs) explores, develops and celebrates patterns. Many of these patterns continue the PLoP legacy of software development patterns. Yet the conference has spread out from its origins in software design, many other related (and some unrelated) subjects are covered. For example: business, management, analysis, pedagogy, human interaction, teaching and pedagogy and co-operation. Today EuroPLoP might better be described as a writers conference. A conference for writers who use the pattern form. Like the other conferences in the *PLoP conferences family, the conference is a meeting place for people where they can exchange their experiences in the development of software. The focus of the conference is on feedback, reflection, and learning.
