Top 10 readings on software modeling

This page tries to collect the most useful readings for non-modeling experts to get them introduced to the world of modeling, model-driven development,… These are not deep technical papers but articles that present some of the important modeling/MDD/MDE/MDA/… concepts/methods/theories/… and discuss their benefits/drawbacks in a way that (I believe) engage the readers and satisfy his/her curiosity.

The top 10 list starts with three initial proposals. Feel free to recommend new additions to the list!!

You don’t need to be a math expert to realize that I’ve not reached yet my 10 references limit. Feel free to suggest other readings. Some candidates to make the list were also discussed here .
