Dear Santa

Dear Santa Claus, My name is Mélanie and I am a little bit too old for that. It’s been a long while since I last wrote to you. This year I have been really naughty nice. All I want for Christmas is: An Eclipse Sirius 6.0 version for June 2018 compatible with Java 8, 9, 10 ( a big fat hen ), 11… and Eclipse Oxygen & Photon. Improved Xtext compatibility with Sirius. I want to thank you Santa as ...

Eclipse Sirius, the technology behind Capella

As the state-of-the-art engineering tool vendors did not provide the appropriate offer, Thales decided in 2007 to develop its own Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) method and workbench. This initiative resulted in Arcadia and Capella. To reduce the complexity and the cost of developing such a custom modeling tool, Thales worked with Obeo to create a new technology that could facilitate the cr...

Zero to CTO

Disclaimer: First, you should know that I am a girl born in the 80’s and so I grew up watching (and watching and re-watching…) Disney’s movies, and I am still used to watch them when new ones are released. So I am sorry for you: no doubt, at the end of this article you will have many annoying songs running in your head. But all those girls made what I am today and it is only justice to them to ear...

Back to the Future

Last week, Obeo sent me to San Jose, California to attend the 1st Eclipse Converge and Devoxx US which was really cool of them. It makes sense to co-locate those events as both involved Java developers and open source projects. I really believe that these communities have so many things to share that this week in California would be a great occasion to learn from each other. Eclipse Converge I sta...

Sadness

That’s too sad!  EclipseCon Europe  finished yesterday. It was again a great conference, with inspiring talks and excellent discussions with different members of the Eclipse community. These moments with our community are motivating us to prepare the future of Eclipse Sirius . So what’s next? What would we cook for you in Eclipse Oxygen? As we already said in our talk, we are already preparing the...

Anger

Do you ever feel that? This week I often dreamt I had the gift of ubiquity… I could replicate myself and be in several places at once. It would be a really useful skill to participate to EclipseCon Europe. I am angry to not be able to see all the talks I would have liked to attend. Happily, as every year all the slides will be available on the EclipseCon website and most of the talks are recorded ...
