Learning ANTLR – a software modeling perspective

We explain why you should think about learning ANTLR to generate your future parsers and what are the best resources for that

Introducing Continuity: Drawing + Modelling

Continuity is a drawing and a modeling tool at the same time and tries to combine the best of both worlds to help you create beautiful formal models

Refactoring Modelling Technology – Say It Clear

The first step in refactoring modeling technology is to understand and tame language complexity. This post proposes several solutions for that, for instnace, the definition of alternative notations for the same conceptual language.

Conceptual modelling for the rest of us with ConML

Modelling is a useful technique for shaping, exploring, documenting, understanding and communicating artefacts of many kinds, and not only software. ConML is a conceptual modelling language for non-experts in information technologies and especially suited to serve non-software modeling domains.

Automatic Generation of Web-Based Modeling Editors

The development of Web-based modeling editors still requires major programming efforts. Here we show how to speed up the process by combining the power of JavaScript and DSLs

JooMDD: Model-Driven Development of Software Extensions for Joomla

JooMDD supports Joomla extension developers with a standard MDD toolset saving time and effort during the development of new Joomla modules

Crowdsource the Notation of your Domain-Specific Language

How do you choose the shapes and colors for the elements of your new domain-specific language? Why not asking the crowd of future users for their opinion? This is what we've done with surprising results.

Building Languages on a budget using Kotlin

See how to easily build a fully functional language thanks to Kotlin, covering also its execution via an interpreter or a JVM or LLVM compiler

Experimentation in DSL Engineering – Integrated Tool Environment

Design your own controlled experiments to improve the design of your domain specific languages. A/B tests for DSLs are now possible!!

On the Opportunities of Scalable Modeling Technologies: An Experience Report with Wind Turbines

A report on how scalable modeling technologies helped Ikerlan to bring its DSL editor for Wind Turbines to the next level

Interview with Francis Bordeleau on Papyrus, “the” modeling platform in Eclipse

Learn more about the past, present and future of Papyrus and the industry of software /systems modeling in general.

Sirius – The easiest way to get your own modeling tool

Sirius is an (Eclipse-based) open Source technology that you can use to easily create a customized modeling workbench. Learn more about what Sirius can do for you and do not miss the free SiriusCon conference coming up next month

MDE4EDU – Towards a Corpus of Use-Cases for Model-Driven Engineering Courses

We have embarked on a project to find (and/or define) good use cases for teaching several flavours of model-driven /model-based engineering. Do you want to join us?

Comparing tools to build graphical modeling editors

Select the best tool to build a graphical editor for your DSL with these criteria and comparison of existing graphical language workbenches

Pirate Robot: An e-learning game powered by online textual modeling with DSL Forge

Modeling in the Browser: What DSL Forge gives for free

A web front-end for your modeling software thanks to this technology to develop domain-specific language editors for web apps and cloud IDEs

An Empirical Study on Simplification of Business Process Modeling Languages

A empirical study presenting a methodology to adapt/personalize modeling languages, illustrated with the domain of business processes modeling languages

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

Add a governance.md file to all your OSS projects

Who decides what feature requests / bug notifications to accept (and how? when?). OSS should clearly define their governance model. We help them on this

Domain-Specific Languages Should Go Metamorphic

Metamoprhic DSLs change their shape depending on your needs. Are metamorphic DSLs the solution to the internal vs external DSLs dilemma?
