Blog overview 2009

It’s the end of the year again. Like last year I want to give you quick overview of this year’s content. But first I want to thank you for the useful discussions we had in the comments and on twitter. I hope you enjoyed reading my articles as much as I enjoyed writing them. I wish you all the best for 2010 and hope we can keep sharing knowledge!

Top 10 posts

Based on the number of page views each
article on my blog had this year I have created the following top 10

  1. 15
    reasons why you should start using Model Driven Development
  2. 5
    types of Model Driven Software Development
  3. What
    every architect should now know about the Service Component Architecture
  4. MDE
    – Model Driven Engineering – reference guide
  5. DSL
    development: 7 recommendations for Domain Specific Language design based
    on Domain-Driven Design
  6. SOA
    is dead; long live Model-Driven SOA
  7. A
    Framework for Model-Driven SOA
  8. 8
    reasons why Model-Driven Development is dangerous
  9. Model
    Driven Engineering tools compared on user activities
  10. Architecture
    requirements for Service-Oriented Business Applications

I didn’t take the time of publishing
into account when looking at the statistics. So, articles posted more
recently are less likely to show up in the top 10, unless they are very
popular. In this context it is remarkable that the number 1 article
is my most recent one!

    Hi Andreas,
    Topics for next year? Good question. As this year, I expect to write a lot on model driven software development. However, I will focus more on examples from practice. Furthermore I will cover topics like application architecture and process modelling. Maybe I am also going to write something about software development methodologies and the position of management in them.
    Feel free to suggest topics!
