Kenn Hussey

Eclipse is an open source community whose projects are focused on building an open development platform comprised of extensible frameworks, tools, and runtimes for building, deploying, and managing software across the lifecycle. The Object Management Group (OMG) is an international, open membership, not-for-profit computer industry consortium which develops enterprise integration specifications, many of which have been implemented by Eclipse projects. This long talk will present a survey of the OMG specifications that are implemented in some form or another (particularly within the Modeling project) at Eclipse and will suggest ways in which Eclipse and the OMG could perhaps work more closely together to benefit the futures of the open source and open specifications communities.

Kenn Hussey works as a Program Manager for Embarcadero Technologies. He is a member of the Project Management Committee (PMC) for the Modeling project, lead of the Model Development Tools (MDT) sub-project, and a committer on the Eclipse Modeling Framework (EMF) sub-project at Eclipse. He is also actively involved with the Object Management Group (OMG), representing Embarcadero on the Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN), Unified Modeling Language (UML), and Meta-Object Facility (MOF) / XML Metadata Interchange (XMI) revision task forces, as well as the Information Management Metamodel (IMM) submission team. He holds Master of Science (Computer Science) and Bachelor of Computer Science (Honors) degrees from Acadia University.
