Over the last two decades, I have been leading the Epsilon open-source project https://eclipse.org/epsilon, which I started developing during my PhD. Epsilon provides languages and tools for model-driven engineering activities such as model-to-text and model-to-model transformation and model validation, and over the years parts of it have been adopted by companies such as Rolls-Royce, Leonardo, Bosch, Codebots and BlackBelt. In this talk I will reflect on the evolution of Epsilon from a one-person PhD project to a mature and robust open-source offering and discuss lessons learnt on the way."
Dimitris Kolovos is a Professor of Software Engineering in the Department of Computer Science at the University of York, where he researches and teaches automated and model-based software engineering. He is also an Eclipse Foundation committer, leading the development of the open-source Epsilon model-based software engineering platform, and an associate editor of the IET Software journal. Prof. Kolovos has co-authored more than 150 peer-reviewed papers and his research has been supported by the European Commission, UK’s Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), InnovateUK and by companies such as Rolls-Royce and IBM.
