Takashi Iba's Invited Talk at SugarLoafPLoP2014 conference (10th Latin American Conference on Pattern Languages of Programs), Ilha Bela, São Paulo, Brazil, Nov, 2014.
Since the late 1990s, pattern languages began to be applied to an increasing range of fields to encompass creative human actions such as education and innovation. To distinguish this new generation of pattern languages that describe patterns for creative human actions, Iba have named it "Pattern Language 3.0." As pattern language domains have expanded, so have its uses. Pattern languages have been used as media for dialogue to allow the exchange of personal experiences. In this talk, I present the idea of Pattern Language 3.0, and show examples of pattern languages as well as new uses for them.
