Bran Selic will be our keynote speaker at HuFaMo! He'll ask "What’s Wrong with 'Users'?"
A new record participation for the 5th installment of the annual PhD Summer School on Empirical Research Methods in SE and Informatics. Follow us on facebook or Twitter!
MODELS will host a panel discussion on the usability of MBSD and its tools-and what impact this has on the adoption of MBSD (or rather lack thereof).
In the past weeks, Ahmadreza, Ari, Ragnar, and Jesper have completed their MSc projects, and passed their final exams. Congratulations to you all!
"Modeling as an integral part of Software Development: When, where, and why it works - or not", presented at the SE Section's "Sofa" talk series. Come see it in 303b.130, at 10:00 on Thursday, July 14th!
VMTL: a language for end-user model transformation now published by J.SoSyM.
