Federico is currently a PhD student in Computer Engineering at Politecnico di Torino. His main interest is on Model-driven development and language orchestration.
He is an author of different technical and scientiefic papers.
Eclipse offers a complete platform for modeling: EMF, Xtext, GMF, CDO represent the state of the art, as consequence Eclipse represents the environment of choice for many practictioners adopting modeling and model-driven development and modeling is getting more and more attention inside the Eclipse community.
For this reason we want to present the results of a survey about modeling in the Italian industry. Some of the questions we will try to answer are: how much modeling is adopted? Which is the level of maturity? What techniques are used more? Which are the problems hindering the spread of model-driven development? What the community needs?
