It’s been a while since my last blog post. I highly enjoyed a vacation in southern spain :). By now, I’m back in business. After two conferences in the Netherlands last week, a NAF Insight session on busines rules (I’ve presented the Mendix vision on Business Engineering, including a live demonstration) and the BPM2008 congres (with a Mendix presentation on the integration of BPM and model-driven tooling), I’ll attend the ACM/IEEE 11th International Conference on Model Driven Engineering Languages and Systems in Toulouse (France) this week.
"The MoDELS series of conferences are devoted to the topic of
model-driven engineering, covering both languages and systems used to
create complex systems. These conferences are both an expansion and a
re-direction of previous Unified Modeling Language (UML) conferences,
and replaced that series of conference since 2005.
Model-driven system development has long been used in the
development of complex hardware systems. It is becoming more prevalent
in complex software or combined hardware and software systems
development as methodologies and tools become available that can
manipulate software models from very abstract concepts through
refinement and testing. The MoDELS series of conferences is the premier
venue for the exchange of innovative technical ideas and experiences
relating to model-driven approaches in the development of
The MoDELS conference has a promising program with topics like Domain-Specific Languages (DSL), meta modelling, model analysis, model transformation, model constraints, model-driven Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA), etc.
I’ll post on a daily base this week, with live experiences from the MoDELS conference.
