Sometimes it is good to relax, enjoy the Autumn weather and reconnect with colleagues. Our dear friend and long-time BridgePoint engineer, Heba, visited 1F headquarters from Cairo, Egypt. We enjoyed a distinctly Indiana experience at a farm and wandered through an 18 acre corn maze.
MODELS continues to be the best modeling conference in the world. It has a good mix of academic and industrial involvement. Satellite workshops with special focus precede the larger conference. xtUML and Shlaer-Mellor development are perennially represented. This year Cortland Starrett served on the program committee for the EXE (Executable Modeling) workshop and participated as

No, we are not talking about the development environment. One Fact’s Levi represented the team in the solar eclipse mania and traveled to be in the 100% zone. This is the picture he took. It is a beauty.
Self-driving cars pose challenges to testing. The quantity and magnitude of sensor inputs create an enormous test vector space. Traditional manual testing methods are inadequate to cover this multi-dimensional vector space with test cases. To address this challenge model-based techniques are applied to manage the testing complexity. Abstraction and automation increase the productivity of test

…view through to the ceiling at MatchBOX Co-working Studio.
One Fact presented to the Saudi Arabian Academy of Global Engineering. The academy had visited Purdue University and stopped in at MatchBOX (the co-working studio that serves as 1F HQ) to explore entrepreneurial start-ups. Of special interest was the formulation of a company around an Open Source business model.
xtUML was represented by Yuki Tsuchitoi at Backslash in Japan today. Here is a link to the presentation (in Japanese). BridgePointでモデル駆動を実践する
Watch the maiden voyage of this elegant aircraft. Congratulations go to the team of engineers designing this plane. It is pleasing to note that there is ‘xtUML inside’.

xtUML Day 2017 UK is in the books! Thank you to all participants for making the event an overwhelming success. Presentations and discussions included moving toward a unified Mellor/Carter method (changes to polymorphic events and referential identifiers), ideas about improved user experience, and discussion of a type system in xtUML. Check out the presentations at:
