Eclipse Day Toulouse 2012 Understanding Eclipse Modeling, Cédric Brun, Obeo
"Modeling". Behind this simple word lies strong opinions, misconceptions, obscure acronyms, meta-things and marketing campains far from the reality of developping an application. But if you look more closely, this forest hides a fairly small set of simple, powerful yet flexible concepts. If you zoom in again, you'll see awesome technologies. While some "dreamers" are giving more and more abstract discourses about modeling, on the field these technologies are pervading, even close to the bare metal in the Eclipse platform itself. In 2012, you might already know you can generate rich applications, but what about web technologies, PHP, C ?
This talk will start by taking a step back about what is all this modeling stuff, what it isn't and what technologies the Eclipse Modeling project brings in this regard. The focus will be placed on tools and components useful to build any kind of application and not just Eclipse based ones : EMF, Acceleo. You'll come back with examples of how you could leverage those technologies for your own project.
Cedric leads the Modeling Amalgamation and EMF Compare components, is commiter on several Eclipse Modeling projects (Acceleo), and his both member of the Eclipse Architecture and Planning Councils. He also is the CTO of Obeo, building a broad range of products, from software modernization to enterprise architecture and software factories.
