Or so Marco Brambilla claims in his panel presentation at Modelsward’15 .
Panel participants also included Mark van den Brand and a crowd-favorite: Bran Selic (make sure you revisit his wisdom pearls on modeilng/UML, you won’t regret it). Marco has posted a summary of the panel including his full set of slides (also below). Despite the title of his talk, more than completely dead, his main point is that modeling should be hidden.
Modeling should be used under the hood and each actor should be shown the proper tool (including programmers, who are not easily buying the model-driven approaches at all)
The challenge is not to show off modeling but the contrary to hide it so that users can benefit from it with limited exposure. Given our intense discussion on the failure of code-generation, I´d say this post is a good provocative continuation.
