Once again, back home after the most exciting till date edition of the Code Generation conference in the latest years. The co-allocation of the Language Workbenches Competition has been a great incentive to attract all of us to join and present alternatives to a great challenge in the domain of modeling and code generation.
In this long post, I want to share my personal view about these days, and for sure, take note it could be partial and subjective. So, be kind to review also the comments as seen by others like Johan den Haan, Markus Völter, Angelo Hulshout, Marco Bambrilla, or Mariot Chauvin to cite a few and more expected to come. Find the majority of the pointers at the http://modeldrivensoftware.net
In this edition, the conference has been deeply covered via twitter using #cg2011 and #lwc11
As expected, I will be only be able to comment about the sessions I personally have attended. Running three tracks in parallel always force us to choose one and miss two other great sessions.
Code Generation 2011 is the leading European conference on modeling and code generation. It’s a great opportunity to meet with the experts in the field and share the latest research in the area.
The invited speakers this year are very, very interesting:
As a novelty, previous to the conference itself the first edition of the Language Workbenches Competition will take place on May 24th in the same venue.
In this edition, I will be there again, more active if ever, taking part with some activities:
As always, I’m looking forward to meet again the code generation community.
Take a look to the full programme and don’t miss the chance.
See you in Cambridge!
Angelo Hulshout has disclosed the list of participants taking part in the first Language Workbenches Competition to be organized on May 24th, at Cambrigde, UK. Just before the Code Generation annual conference.
Finally, I will also be there presenting Essential as a solution to the challenge. It’s a nice excuse to go there, just in case!
Now I can hear in the background the sound of knives being sharpened, nevertheless with an Olympic spirit. }:)
If you want to see the State of the Art of the next generation Software Engineering tools in action, don’t miss the opportunity and join us. See you there!
As blogged before, at CG2010 a group of interest came up with a proposal for creating a Language Workbenches Competition and the first edition will be taking place in Cambridge May 24th, just before CG2011.
I submitted a proposal with Essential for participation in LWC11. It’s going to be a great forum for comparing language workbenches capabilities and the state of the art in the area. If interested, track the progress here LCW11.
During the last weeks I’ve been working a little, replacing the old Microsoft Oslo dependencies to MGrammar inside Essential to an alternative parsing solution. The MS Oslo and later SQL Server Modeling never passed from the CTP stage and finally were discontinued. Therefore, I couldn’t ship a product in such conditions and finally decided to change it.
