If you’ve been following this blog, you already know that I have an Industry Consortium.
And if you looked at the Papyrus Industry Consortium’s (PIC) website, you also know that it has a Research and Academia Committee!
And that committee is known to hold very interesting webinars about various aspects of modeling, open source, and, of course, ME!
Plan to attend EclipseCon Europe 2016 and take the opportunity to learn more about PolarSys technologies.

Have you heard about MARTE?
Well, MARTE is the OMG Modeling and Analysis of Real-Time Embedded Systems profile.
Yes, it’s a mouthful, but if you are interested in the nitty-gritty of embedded systems, it can be very useful!
Here’s a short message from one of my minion about it:
We are pleased to announce that the MARTE feature has been transformed into a Papyrus Component. The MARTE 1.2.1 release, for Eclipse Neon, can be downloaded from . We advise you to uninstal4l any previous version of MARTE beforehand.
Over the last few days, a large group of my minions and admires met in Sweden at EMD2017 to talk about me…in all my incarnation.
One of the most polarizing discussion was about whether I should stay graphical or whether I also needed to be textual. For those who do not know, I am a UML-based modeling tool and therefore graphical by nature.
However, some of my minions think that I would be more usable if I also allowed them to create/edit models using text (just like this posting, but in a model instead of a blog post.
PolarSys partners will be exhibiting at a joint booth at the Incose International Symposium, July 18-21 in Edinburgh. Drop by to see demos of Papyrus and Capella and learn more about PolarSys Solutions.
Well, my feathers are a bit ruffled.
It seems that Michael Jastram thinks I am not very good… (or perhaps it’s my German that’s not so good).
In his comment on that page, he compares me, with my youth and open source approach, to established “excellent, affordable commercial tools” (“hervorragende, erschwingliche kommerzielle Werkzeuge”).
