The concept of separation of concerns is fundamental to the practice of software development. In recent years, research into advanced techniques for separating concerns has been very active. Aspect-oriented programming has emerged from this research. Among the key features of aspect-oriented programming is the ability to modularize tangled and crosscutting concerns. This workshop course provides computer science students with an overview of current thinking in advanced separation of concerns. Students are introduced to the relevant concepts in the context of the scripting language Python. The development of Web-based applications is used as a problem domain for the workshop.
