Eclipse is the best Open-Source modeling platform, thanks to EMF and the myriad of complementary projects you can easily design and leverage models in many contexts. These models then become as important as your source code and team work support quickly becomes a life saver.
EMF Compare - now part of the EMF project itselfs - solves these issues by providing a generic model comparison and merge support, integration with the team providers like CVS, SVN and GIT and even more specific features allowing you to use your model deltas in many other ways.
This talk will focus on the new features the Helios release is providing and will provide demos and real-world examples to help you discover the API and tools you can re-use.
Cédric leads the EMF Compare component, is commiter on several Eclipse Modeling projects (Acceleo, Amalgamation), and his both member of the Eclipse Architecture and Planning Councils. As a product architect at Obeo he is technical lead of Obeo Designer and works on software evolution, re-engineering and cartography of legacy systems; all through model driven processes. He has graduated both the Polytech' engineering school and a research Master at the University of Nantes and specialized himself in software engineering and model driven engineering. Prior to his current jobs he has been an active contributor to open source and worked in Guangzhou on a global video conference solution for the Chinese Education and Research Network (CERNET).
