New Year, New Job

Roots

The recent acquisition of CodeGear by Embarcadero has opened up a lot of exciting opportunities. Recently, I took on the role of the Program Manager for Java and SQL Developer products, a part I was born to play ;)

We have many new efforts underway. Perish the thought, maybe 2009 will finally bring a powerful and easy-to-use Eclipse-based Java profiler.


The Model of a Model is a Model


In an attempt to buy my love and to convince me that modeling is good for me, the EMF team has offered me a complimentary copy of the 2nd edition of the EMF book.

They explore topics ranging from how "everything is a model" to how "a model is a model is a model", and they bring it home with a chapter that explores how "the model of a model is a model." I am looking forward to it.

For the third edition, I think it would be interesting and effective to structure the book as a collection of essays and to tell the EMF story in the first person from the point of view of a model.
