Cédric Brun is the CEO at Obeo, a French tool vendor helping organizations face complex systems to reach their goal through design tool. I started as a software engineer with a hint of academia through a master degree. I got involved in open-source projects quite early through contributions to KDE or the Linux Kernel, I then joined the Eclipse community and I am leading couples of projects there (EcoreTools, Amalgamation) and I am a member of the Architecture Council. The itch I keep scratching is 'How can we make better and open tools, faster?' and that led me to domain specific modeling practices and technologies. I like to share my findings through conferences and happened to co-author a number of articles and research papers.

North America, here we come!

Industries are relying either on ad hoc or rigid tools for systems engineering. Either the tool is built “in-house” and grow organically or it is bought to one of the big software vendors and then the company have to adapt its practices and teams to use it. Such software vendors might use every opportunity to lock in their users, in both cases the tool longevity is quite uncertain. In the last 11 ...

You only have a few more hours to submit to EclipseCon Europe!

I’m deeply honored of being part of the program committee again for EclipseCon Europe 2017. Each year I’m amazed at this conference, it was one of the first Eclipse event I attend and since then it has always had a strong friendly vibe to it. In the last few years it evolved into the main international event for the Eclipse community, attending it should be a no brainer. This conference is great b...
