Product Line Engineering

Software Product Line Conference 2008

Posted in Bits'n'Pieces by danilo on July 28, 2008

After 3 years SPLC (2005 in Rennes)  is back in Europe in Limerick, Ireland during the second week in September. I’m wondering whether and how the event will have changed. Especially during the last 12 months I saw a much stronger uptake of SPL ideas in industry. So will there be even more industry at the conference? Will we see a new paradigm for SPLC? I saw some quite interesting papers in the program, for instance “Adding Standardized Variability to Domain Specific Languages”. Maybe it is the answer to the question “Is there a need for a set of generic variability constructs to be included in domain specific languages” . We raised this question during the panel MDD and SPL – a marriage made in heaven?  at the nice Code Generation 2008 conference. We did not agree on a yes or no back then AFAIR.

I will be busy anyway, there is a panel of PL scoping in Practice on Tuesday were I happen to be one of the panelists, we have a pure::variants demo slot on Wednesday (2 other pure::variants related demos in same session) and on Friday there will be my tutorial “Transforming Legacy Systems in Software Product Lines”. Since being this the last activity of the SPLC 2008 we have to celebrate in a pub after this I guess 😉 . I will update some of the tutorial material since I have got a lot of new experience to integrate. However, fitting it in 3 hours  becomes ever more challenging. Talking faster is no solution…

Anyway, see you at SPLC 2008.
