Probably this title of this talk should be “the proof you all been waiting for”!
Next Thursday, March 31st. in Nantes, Michel Chaudron will give the talk “Modeling effectively : insights from empirical studies” as part of the Jeudi des Modèles series (you can register here ).
- What is the state of UML modeling in practice?
- How can we assess the quality of UML models?
- How do engineers look at UML models?
- Do UML models actually help in creating better software?
Michel will review all these topics during the talk. As he says, “modeling is a common part of modern day software engineering practice. Little evidence is known about how models are made and how they help in producing better software. In this talk I will present highlights from the last decade of research that I have performed in the area of software modeling using UML.”
We all know that one of the main criticisms to modeling is the lack of empirical studies that show its supposed benefits in practice. Let´s see if Michel can settle this issue once and for all (ok, maybe that´s too ambitious, let´s say: “let´s see if Michel sheds some light on this issue”)
Don´t miss it! (if you believe in modeling, this talk will give you the tools to convince others, if you are a modeling skeptic then maybe this talk will help you to see the light 🙂 )
