    Abstract

    A Pattern Writer's Workshop (WW) is a peer-review method to improve pattern or pattern language papers. However, several problems may arise, leading to "ad hoc" review meetings where patterns are not systematically reviewed and authors do not receive useful feedback. Previously, we considered Checklist-based Reading (CBR) and Perspective-based Reading (PBR), which are techniques to improve ad hoc reviews, but some deficiencies were noted. In our focus group, we organized a mini WW using these technique and results are summarized in this paper.
