Review of our “Model-driven Software Engineering in Practice” book at


For those that want to read a summary + quick review of our Model-driven Software Engineering in Practice, Roberto Zicari has just posted a review of the book in the portal (“The Resource Portal for Big Data and New Data Management Technologies”). Read the review here. And remember that more than 50 universities/institutions are

Hot topics in MDE research (based on ECMFA accepted papers)

ecmfa wordcloud - accepted

As promised, now that we have completed the selection of the research papers to be presented at ECMFA’14 , I’m showing you the wordcloud for their titles so that you can get a feeling of what research teams on model-driven engineering are working on right now. As a reminder, this was the wordcloud for the

MONDO Project – Scalable modeling and model management in the cloud


Check the web page of one of the latests projects AtlanMod is involved: MONDO – Scalable modeling and model management in the cloud As Model Driven Engineering (MDE) is increasingly applied to larger and more complex systems, the current generation of modelling and model management technologies are being pushed to their limits in terms of

Who wants to help us build EMF-REST (Restful APIs for models)?


Most research prototypes die just after the paper that justified its creation is published. We don’t want this to happen to EMF-Rest (see a small intro). EMF-REST generates truly RESTful APIs for your EMF model + a JavaScript library to manipulate themClick To TweetPowered By CoSchedule In this case, situation is even worse since we

Publishing the MDE book – My frustrations 18 months later


Our Model-Driven Software Engineering in Practice book was published in September 2012. 18 months later I´d like to share with you some personal reflections on the publication (and marketing) process for the book. I belive that Marco and Manuel share most of these opinions but I´m just talking on my own behalf here. I´ll skip

WordCloud for the ECMFA’14 conference (titles of submitted papers)

ECMFA wordcloud - submitted papers

We have now closed the abstract submission phase for ECMFA’14 (European Conference on Modeling Foundations and Apoplications) and I thought you may be curious to see the wordcloud that we get with the titles of all submitted papers (track Foundations only). I’ve just done minimal edits (e.g. to remove the words model and modeling which

Mendix (a “MDD company”) raises $25M in funding

By now, I guess you all know already that Mendix has closed a $25 million Series B investment, led by Battery Ventures to Fuel Product Innovation, Growth and Customer Success. I do belive these are great news for our community (no, I will not pocket any of these 25M, at least, unless they increase the

Tata Consultancy Services: from model-driven development to model-driven organization


Guest post by Sagar Sunkle and Vinay Kulkarni explaining how the use of model-driven techniques at Tata Consultancy Services is evolving. Enter Sagar and Vinay. MDD at TCS in the past MasterCraft, our toolset that implements model-driven development (MDD), came into existence in mid-90s as an enabling technology for a solution to a critical business problem

ECMFA (European Conference on Modeling Foundations and Applications) still exists!


Many of you (well, at least I hope some fo you) may be wondering what is going on with ECMFA since there is no CfP going around, no web page,… So, let me assure you that ECMFA’14 will take place as usual. It’s going to be part of the STAF federation of conferences on Software

AutoMobile project – Automated Mobile App development

model-driven for mobile devices

This week we had the kick-off of the AutoMobile project, an European project (7th Framework Programme, Research For SMEs call) aimed at (from the project web page) “designing and bringing to the market innovative methodologies, software tools, and vertical applications for the cost-effective implementation of cross-platform, multi-device mobile applications, i.e. business applications that can be
