CG2009 KEYNOTE SPEAKERS
We are very pleased to introduce Steven Kelly (MetaCase) and Markus Völter (Independent / itemis) as our conference keynote speakers.
In a break from tradition our two keynotes joined forces and delivered both keynote talks as a team:
MDD: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly: Wednesday 17th JuneModel driven development has become a well-established approach to software development that is used by many organizations. It is not bleeding edge anymore. In this two-part keynote Steven Kelly and Markus Völter summarize their experience in using MDD in many different environments. They show what works, what doesn't, and how to avoid pitfalls. Topics covered include domain analysis, language design, model processing, as well as organizational and process related challenges challenges.
MDD: The Best, The Worst and The Ugliest: Thursday 17th JuneThis second part of Markus and Steven’s two-part keynote provides even more lessons learned on model driven development. As a consequence of the two speakers' different backgrounds and different tool preferences, the best practices are not tool specific.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT THE CODE GENERATION CONFERENCE
"[A] great opportunity to meet with influential practitioners in the field."
"The combined—for that matter, individual—expertise present was remarkable, and presented a tremendous opportunity for knowledge exchange."
"I've been working in domain-specific modelling for a dozen years … and in this time this has been the highest-quality conference on this topic that I've been to - and I've been to a few."
"I'll definitely try to attend next year and will recommend this conference to my colleagues and customers."
"Three very long, exhausting but thoroughly enjoyable and very informative days."
"The presentations were all top quality, making it often difficult to decide between the concurrently running sessions. The wealth of MDD knowledge present at the event was impressive, not only from the presenters, but from the other delegates as well."
"I enjoyed the conference very much, it has been the best conference of the last years I’ve been to. A very good selection of speakers, but I also think that the level of expertise of the audience was very high, much higher than I expected. ... it gives the opportunity to dig much deeper."
