It’s been an interesting few months… After a short consulting contract with Zeligsoft, I have a become an employee. In this new position, I am involved with Papyrus in a product management capacity.
For those who don’t know me, I have extensive background in modeling, having worked with many tools and technologies as well as worked to help define some commercial offerings. So being involved in yet another modeling tool should be no surprise. Papyrus, however, is different from those with which I’ve worked: It’s open source… So in addition to the challenges of creating the best product for our customers and clients, there is that of wondering where the money comes from – but that’s a topic for another blog entry.
Papyrus is on the verge of an important milestone: after many years of incubation, both outside and within the Eclipse Foundation ecosystem, it will finally be released at version 1.0 as part of the Eclipse Luna simultaneous release train!
As part of this grand endeavour, I have presented “An introduction to Papyrus“, a short, 35 minutes, talk at Eclipse Day Montreal 2014, held June 10 at Ericsson Canada in Montreal, Quebec. You can find that presentation on Slideshare and below.
The adventure will continue next week as I will participate in EclipseCon France. I will be co-lead of a hands-on workshop at the Working Group Unconference on Getting started with Papyrus and giving a talk about Papyrus for Real Time Embedded Systems development. If you are in Toulouse, France, next week, look me up at the conference!
