[crossposted here from]


Pfheww.. it's already two days ago that I left Cambridge, after three days of model driven development information overload.

On Tuesday, I chaired, together with my beloved egg timer, the…

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…

Observations and trends, update during Code Generation 2010

Based on what I posted a few weeks ago, I wrote another blog on trends in model driven development, extending my observations with what I heard from others during Code Generation 2010.

MDSD Tooling Index - Cont'd

Well, works been bothering me (not really, but it takes up most of my time lately and I'm glad too), so the work on the index has been stalled for a few weeks already. I will likely not be able to pick up on this before early september. In the mean time, keep me posted on any ideas, suggestions and so on related to what I already announced in my previous blog entry.

MDSD tooling index

I'll be publishing a (monthly or bi-monthly) updated index of the most popular MDSD tools and technologies some time in the next two weeks. This is based on web results and a set of tools and technologies that I am aware of.

The initial (unranked) list will appear on my web site ( over the weekend. Please drop me an e-mail if you think a tool or technology that is not on that list should be… Continue

Code Generation 2009 - Day 3

This third day at Code Generation is a short one for me - due to my flight schedule I will have to skip the closing panel.

However, it's been another useful day. The first session this morning was part 2 of Markus Völter and Steven Kelly's key note. A number of interesting observations regarding model decomposition, integration and partitioning where the main part, again interleaved with worst practise examples.

After the keynote, I joined the Xtext workshop, to get my first… Continue

Code Generation 2009 - Day 2

Thanks to Karsten's post earlier today I won't have to worry about not having a camera with me that is decent enough to take pictures during the conference - instead, I'll focus on what I've seen today.

This morning, the first of two keynotes by the dynamic duo Blondie and Tuco, a.k.a. Markus Völter and Steven Kelly (you figure out who is who - in the movie Blondie is the good, Tuco the ugly). They took us on a lightning right through the essence of model driven development: the… Continue

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
