Session Title

The Use of Model-Driven Development in Industry

Session Type Experience Report

Duration 90 minutes

Session Description

This Extended Experience Report will present some of the findings of an extensive survey of how MDD is being used in industry. The survey included a widely distributed questionnaire, in-depth interviews and even included a workshop session at CodeGen2010. The findings present a rich understanding of how industrial practitioners are using MDD and provide some fascinating insights into what practitioners think about MDD and its use. Many of the findings are not specifically technical issues but instead focus up organisational and social factors.
