Confused by all the meta-meta mumbo jumbo in Domain Specific Language (DSL) discussions? Ever wonder what a DSL can really do for you?
In this talk, learn about DSL technology and how it helped us bridge the IT Management requirement of addressing two audiences: business analysts who understand the business that IT supports and technologists who understand servers, routers, software and databases. The two groups must converge on IT management solutions, but they often cannot understand each other. A graphic DSL can be a bridge to understanding.
Bill is a senior software architect working at CA. His background includes extensive software development experience. He was also a committer on the Eclipse COSMOS project.
Marv Waschke is a long time developer of service management software for CA Inc. He has struggled for many years to bridge the great divides between business analysts, IT technologists, and software engineers.
