Those of you who are subscribed to the cgn-talk yahoo group will know that we’re planning a Code GenerationÂ Network event to take place in Cambridge, EnglandÂ next year.
This past week we’ve been busy trying to find a suitable venue to host the event and it’s not been entirely plain sailing. The first problem has been with our proposed dates of May – June 2007. Unfortunately these clash with peak exam period here in the UK and so many of the larger rooms that would be suitable to hold the 120 or so developers we’re planning for are unavailable. The second problem is that many of the smaller colleges don’t quite have the capacity for 120 people. Finally, some colleges just don’t seem to be interested in a non-residential event such as this one.
Anyway, despite all this there are someÂ suitable venues and we’ve been busy viewing these this week and will visit more next week. OnceÂ we have a venue and dates pinned down we’ll then be able to go back to the sponsors with a firmer idea of costs and hopefully we’ll get them on board and be able to start publicising the event more widely.
In the meantime, if you’re interested in sponsoring the event, participating in the event, or helping with the organisation then please get in touch – volunteers from the Cambridge area are particularly welcome
The proposed list of topics is:
- industrial case studies, industrial applications,
- legacy-system migration,
- domain-specific languages and domain-specific modelling,
- software factories,
- software product lines,
- program generation, program transformation,
- generative programming,
- feature-oriented programming
- template meta-programming,
- aspect-oriented software development,
- model-driven architecture, model-driven (software) development,
- feature modelling,
- domain analysis, domain engineering,
- component generation,
- reasoning about models
The event is being planned to last three days. Day 1 will cover in-depth tutorials and workshops. Day 2 – 3 will involve lectures, smaller tutorials, panel sessions, etc.
A small exhibition of leading code generation tools is being planned to run concurrently.
