The secret life of rules in Software Engineering

Summary of my invited talk at the RuleML+RR conference where I discussed why rules are not first-class citizens in software engineering and why this has to change to keep up with the demands of big data and open data.

Lightweight model-driven engineering

Revisiting all aspects of model-driven engineering (application, teaching, verification , tooling, research,...) promoting a lightweight perspective to maximize MDE success and adoption

Ericsson Modeling Days

A new edition of the Ericsson Modeling days is coming up. A unique opportunity to meet with plenty of companies interested in model-driven engineering

Is model-based science like model-based engineering? – The case of climate models

Lessons learnt after observing how scientits develop their climate models (and how we could help them) by Steve Easterbrook

Improving Languages: usage patterns to the rescue (slides)

My take on how to uncover language usage patterns (and how to use them to improve the language definition itself). Talk at PAME 2015

Grady Booch on the Future of Software Engineering (video and highlights)

Video and Highlights of Grady Booch's keynote at ICSE 2015. I was there and I can tell you this is a video you want to see right now.
