Quite a number of my colleagues at itemis have been busy preparing for this conference in the past few weeks. Besides working hard to hit the Eclipse Release Train milestone for Indigo on June 22nd, the Xtext team brushed up their hands-on sessions "Xtext Take I: Creating Code Generators with Xtend2" and "Xtext Take II: Crafting Domain Specific Languages with Xtext and Xbase". If you've been using Xtext, you're well aware of the power you have at your disposal with this tool. Xbase and Xtend2, however, take this experience to a whole new level. So make sure to mark your calendar for these two sessions!
But not only the Xtext team will share their expertise at CG2011 - Markus and Karsten will be also be in town to give hands-on tutorials and report from their experience:
- Type Systems for DSLs (Markus Völter)
- Graphiti + Xtext: mixing graphical and textual DSLs for sprayers/designers (Karsten Thoms / Bernhard Merkle)
- Introduction to JetBrains Meta Programming System (MPS) (Markus Völter)
The finale of the conference will be a panel discussion hosted by Markus on the topic of "Models, DSLs, Transformations: The Next 5 years" - this should be a very interesting and lively discussion!
Heiko and I will present "Cross-Platform Mobile Development with DSLs" - a fast-paced and fun mixture of slides, live coding (or modeling, if you will), videos and audience interaction. Yes, that's right - the audience will be part of the show. Make sure to bring your web-enabled mobile phone and get the chance to win a price!
To keep track of the conference program(me), we at itemis mobile have been busy to create a conference planner for your iOS and Android powered mobile phones. Here are the download links:
