Stachowiak on Preterition and Abundance in Modelling

In his 1973 book “Allgemeine Modelltheorie” (General Model Theory) Herbert Stachowiak describes the fundamental properties that make a Model.  Unfortunately this is still not available in english language, so I thought why not try a (quite free-style) translation of the essential bits (see here for all):

It is pretty inconvenient to post images here, so…

Which workbench?

The web, Twitter, newsletters, advertisements and magazines continue to show a growing interest in Model Driven Development, and for model driven development tools that are often referred to as language workbenches. Apparently, this concept has found an audience amongst tool developers and software development organisations.

However, this attention has a downside - in the form of many different solutions, with varying functionality and qualiy, which makes the choice for the right…

A day at the generation...

It's been fun, the first day at the CodeGeneration 2009 Conference. Met quite a few old acquaintances, like Juha-Pekka Tolvanen and Steven Kelly, but also Jos Warmer (who I hadn't seen in at least a week).



With 10 presentations and workshops to choose from, life wasn't that easy but also not really hard.

Template Specialization right after breakfast was a bit too much for me, so instead I enjoyed Juha-Pekka's introduction to MDD. Not much news in there for me, but his overview… Continue
