Session Description

This session reviews 20 industry cases using Domain-Specific Modelling with full code generation.

Some cases have been in use for over 10 years whereas others are just developed. One case will be highlighted in the second part of the sesison - a Service Creation framework for IP based telecommunications services developed at ICT Solutions in the Netherlands.
