Papyrus Coding Day 2018

In previous posts (here and here), I mentioned the increased focus on Papyrus Toolsmiths.

In this context, the Papyrus development team is putting together a “Papyrus coding day” just before EclipseCon France.
During this free coding day, they will provide you with:

  • Hands-on sessions to get an insight on Papyrus SDK capabilities
  • Discussions with the Papyrus development team

Registration is mandatory as there is a limit on the number of attendees is limited.

And rejoice in that attendance is free (and includes coffee and snacks)!

There are, however, prerequisites:

  • Knowledge of Java (at least intermediate level)
  • EMF and UML experience is an plus!

So whether you are already invested in Papyrus, just curious, a toolsmith or a hacker, this may be of interest to you!

You can contact me is this is of interest and I will put you in touch with the organizers!

(The information you provide will only be used to put you in touch with the organizer and then deleted)

PolarSys at INCOSE Symposium

Did you know my SysML and Real Time solutions were showcased, along with Capella and Arcadia, in the PolarSys booth at the INCOSE Symposium 2015 back in July?

If you missed it, I’m sorry, but it was a very good event – people were interested in my open source modeling solutions for systems!

My friend Gaël has a good summary on the PolarSys blog. You should go have a look!

Papyrus for Real Time at EclipseCon Europe 2015

If you recall, Papyrus for Real Time (a.k.a., Papyrus-RT) was approved earlier this year as a new Eclipse project.

One of my minions’ presentation about Papyrus-RT was accepted at EclipseCon Europe 2015. In that presentation he will explain what Papyrus-RT is, how it can make models executable, and will even show what it can do!

If you are going to EclipseCon and are interested in fully creating runnable executables from UML, come and have a look!

You can also look a the Papyrus-RT wiki for more information about the tool.

I look forward to meeting you in Ludwigsburg, DE!

EclipseCon Europe 2014 – The Aftermath

EclipseCon Europe was so much fun that it took me a whole week to recover! That’s what you call a conference!

As I stated in a previous post, there was a whole day dedicated to me as part of the conference. On the Tuesday, at least 32 of my best friends came together in the Wilhelm-Kramer-Zimmer room and spent the day discussing my existing and new features and new ways of working. I liked that beginners could have a view of me, how my models can be validated, the whole collaborative modeling discussion, and the various useful extensions and use of my capabilities. And of course, the great discussions over dinner!

Presentations from the summit can be found on its wiki page.

In parallel, in the modeling summit, people also learned how I am developing more real-time, executable capabilities! Yes, I was already supporting MARTE (Modeling and Analysis of Real-Time Embedded Systems), and now I’m getting full code generation for UML-RT! This means that you create your UML-RT model, press a button, and generate a complete, runnable system! The only drawback is that you’ll have to wait for the Eclipse Mars release in June 2015.

On the Wednesday, there was a great presentation that highlighted my customisation capabilities and DSML (Domain-Specific Modeling Language) support. In “UML or DSML? You can now have both with Papyrus 1.0!“, Ericsson described a real-life example of using my capabilities to create a DSML that enabled greater collaboration across domain and expertise silos!

The next big Eclipse event will be EclipseCon North America. Come see me there!


EclipseCon Europe 2014 – Unconference

Well, it was a fun day. I learned a lot more about my capabilities from the nice people at CEA (you know who you are!). It seems I can do a lot of things – and still so young!

Today, attendees where taught how to get started with me, as well as being told about some nice shortcuts from the developers themselves!

And then, they were told how my capabilities can help companies design cars (did you know there are lots of control systems in a car?)!

Today was a great day and tomorrow, there will be a modeling summit, I sure hope they’ll talk about me! (note: they will…).

EclipseCon Europe 2014

I am at EclipseCon Europe this week. You can look for me (look at my photo), but I will not be walking the halls… Instead, you can ask some of my parents (people from CEA, Ericsson, and Zeligsoft – or people with my stickers on their computers) questions about me!

Even better, you can attend the sessions where I am the star!

Look for my peeps and ask questions – I am sure you will like me (I am so loveable…).


I’ll be spreading my wings

I’ll soon be spreading my wings and traveling to Ludwigsburg, Germany!

What could I be doing in Ludwigsburg? Attending EclipseCon Europe 2014 of course!!!

Four days spent with all my favorite Eclipse brothers, sisters, cousins, etc. What better way to spend a week (especially with all this time I’m spending at school (my handlers call it a lab, but I know better…) than getting to know other Eclipse projects and meeting people who are interested in open source and, especially those recognize or have a need for my particular talents!

During the conference, I will also have my very own “Papyrus and Modeling Technologies Developer Summit”! Not even a year old and I already have a dedicated session (OK…I do share it with other Eclipse modeling technologies, such as EMF, QVTo, etc.)! I even heard there my be some talk about my own growth…

On the Monday, there also the UnConference. Would you like to learn ? Just register to attend and you discover how to get started with me during the “Getting Started with Papyrus” session where I’ll show you how to use me my capabilities! If you like automobiles and embedded systems, you can attend the “Customizing Papyrus for Automotive and Embedded Systems” session where you learn more about how to make me prettier and to augment and specialize my capabilities.

Are you wondering whether you are better using UML or a DSML? “UML or DSML? You can now have both with Papyrus 1.0!” will help answer your question!

Did you known that, although I have UML in my name, I can do and be much more? “Diapason, MDE cutting-edge solutions for the correct design of complex Cyber-Physical Systems” will show you some good example where I can be built better, faster, and stronger!

Have a look at the Conference website, realize it’s what you need, and come see me!(And don’t worry…the beak may be long, but I don’t bite!)

P.S.: Are you interested in discussing all this with like-minded modeling enthusiasts? Let me know and maybe we can arrange a BoF or some get-together!
