Session Title MetaEdit+: Industrial-Strength MDD

Session Type Tutorial

Duration 75 minutes

Session Description

You’ve been through the pain of code that grows too big, models that are out of sync with the code, and tools that chew through memory and slow to a crawl for big models. You’re tired of fighting against bugs in the tools, lack of documentation, and version incompatibilities between tool components. Building your own modeling language tooling looked quick and flexible, but it’s turned into a nightmare that sucks all your resources and gives nothing back. And yet you still know it’s the right thing to do.

MetaEdit+ may be able to help. It’s the most mature tool, with the largest number of industrial cases. It’s proven to scale to hundreds of users and millions of model elements. It’s fast to learn and fast to use— one cohesive tool, with IDE integration for Eclipse and Visual Studio. Above all, it makes the hard things simple: multiple simultaneous modelers, multiple integrated languages, and language evolution.

Come and see the new 5.0 version of MetaEdit+, and find out how it can help your project onto the fast track to success.
